Join Ron Davis for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Excel Data-Mining Fundamentals.
- So, next steps, or, where do you go from here?…Well, what I would suggest is two things…that can have immediate impact on a business.…See if you can get a hold of a shopping basket,…that is, the data out of some repository,…probably over on SQL, or maybe on a point-of-sale system…that contains the shopping basket, that is,…the different items that people purchased at the same time.…So they'll have a linking transaction number.…We did some shopping basket analysis, so if you can…get a sample of, say, ten, twenty, thirty,…forty, fifty thousand different transactions,…then go ahead, put it into Excel, and then just…run the shopping basket analysis on it…and see what it comes up with.…
If you see anything that may give you…some ideas of how to change certain things,…like the old "Put the chewing gum…"next to the checkout counter," then you might want…to implement it, or suggest it within your business.…The second thing you want to take a look at is,…what do you know about your customers?…So you want to analyze key influencers.…
