So you have gathered your data and completed your exploration and cleansing. You labored countless hours transforming the data and created a strong model that can revolutionize the way your company sees its clients, makes decisions and competes in your market. Yet for all of your efforts the model roll out is stalled. The numbers are good. You have charts illustrating the potential lift to the business. You have a compelling story. The presentation explaining the value is simplistic and eye catching without being too flashy.
But there is that person that hesitates, wants another test, another analysis, another something before you move forward. They seem to be supportive, yet there is something that will not allow them to give their final approval so the team can move forward.
