The Art of the Possible
A mentoring workshop series for business representatives & leaders wishing to become data-driven.
Putting theory into practice
Our ‘Art of the possible’ series of workshops are renowned for supporting an organisation’s data-driven journey and, together with our work with the Data Science communities, are the basis of our hard-earned reputation as one of the industry’s leading educators. These workshops offer practical advice, education and mentoring to business leaders and to those who hold the analytic remit.
Each workshop is led by an experienced Data Science Consultant with significant industry expertise and is designed to inspire leaders and managers and to inform them of the possibilities and opportunities of Data Science and Advanced Analytics. Customised to industry sectors, we allow for a greater depth of understanding; to ensure close alignment between analytics opportunities and business strategy, and to address specific barriers to change.
When a business is aligned, inspired and committed to action, great things can happen.
The Workshops are Aimed At:
- Leadership – senior stakeholders who own the data & analytic remit (typically C-Level). Typically this is a Chief Data Officer or CIO
- Business Owners – Managers in business areas who own targets and processes that could be empowered by data/analytics
- Analytics functions – internal analytic teams responsible for providing insight to the business
Each Workshop Aims To:
- Demystify the complex world of data and analytics
- Explore those analytic initiatives that would add value to your organisation
- Improve communication and collaboration between business and technical functions by creating a common language around data and analytics
- Allow organisations to identify an optimal way forward as they transition to a more data-driven model

Multinational retailer with over 1,000 stores in 50+ countries to help the business and analytics teams build a shared language. This lack of shared language has meant that the teams were working in silos and data-driven projects had stalled. Using interactive and practical exercises, where the teams worked together, resulted in the identification of over 20 new high-value analytical initiatives both teams agreed to take forward.
A global financial services company turned to Mango and wanted a common understanding of the possibilities of advanced analytics. This led the business and analytic teams to identify a high-value initiative around customer interaction. The resulting analytic solution— created by Mango—increased cross-sell and up-sell in their call centre by ~25%. The result? Over £200 million additional revenue.
Mango have been instrumental to our data analytics journey. They have tailored their training and consultancy services to align to our business, data and wider strategic aims. Through interactive workshops, analysts have been able to solve real business problems and extract value from our analytics.
