PLENARY INVITED SESSION
HOW TO MAKE A DECISION MAKER HAPPY
Antje Christensen, PhD, Project Director, Novo Nordisk, Denmark, and 2015 ENBIS Best Manager Award Winner
What do decision makers want from statisticians? What do I want from Stina or David, when I ask them for an analysis? We will have a glimpse into the dreams and headaches of managers, look at a few examples of statistical analyses from the manager’s side, and put them into a context of decision theory.
Antje has been working in the pharmaceutical industry with Novo Nordisk for the past 23 years, first as a statistician, then in project management within optimisation of a broad range of production processes. This long-term work relationship included a period of product lifecycle management, and followed a short stint into opinion polling. Antje holds a PhD and MSc in mathematics from Ruhr University Bochum in Germany, a degree in product innovation from the Scandinavian International Management Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark, as well as a Six Sigma black belt certification from the American Society for Quality, and company internal certifications in Six Sigma and Scrum. She has been involved with ENBIS since its foundation in 2000, and received the ENBIS Best Manager Award in 2015.
