“Data is vital. Efficient, effective, accurate analysis of data is more critical than ever for running an organization and ensuring its key functions are nimble, responsive, and contributing to the greatest possible return on investment,” said Dr. John Johnson, Founder and CEO of Edgeworth and one of the world’s most prominent econometricians practicing today.

Dr. Johnson also announced that Bill Ford, Edgeworth’s Director of Strategy, will oversee all day-to-day operations of Edgeworth Analytics. Mr. Ford has extensive experience in product development and financial consulting. He has worked with clients to develop insights from their data while also providing them with the training and tools needed to continue their data journey. Mr. Ford’s experience has ranged from developing Excel-based templates to developing in-house analytic applications to maximize efficiency, standardize client reports, and minimize errors.

The volume and complexity of data has grown such that business professionals are overwhelmed by their own information. It is becoming more and more difficult for critical functions like human resources to keep up with data flows, let alone effectively analyze and apply data to improve functional and organizational operations. Edgeworth Analytics teaches methods for gathering, organizing, analyzing, and applying data—transforming data analytics from a source of anxiety to a consistent driver of stronger operational and competitive performance.

Making data analytics accessible and easy to understand is central to the Edgeworth Analytics mission. The firm applies a communication style pioneered by Edgeworth Economics, whose success depends on being able to communicate highly technical, complicated concepts simply and clearly to audiences like corporate leaders, juries, and judges. Meanwhile, the Edgeworth analytical techniques are rooted in rigorous approaches developed by PhD economists from world-class institutions like MIT and Stanford, and applied in Fortune 500 companies, high-profile litigation, and complex regulatory proceedings.
