Date/Time: 8:00am, September 29

One of the more common strategic requests directed to business analytic teams is to analyze market research or related data to better understand the drivers of customer loyalty, satisfaction, or in this case, share of wallet. Using data from an extensive survey in the fresh-squeezed orange juice category, we compare and contrast direct-effect-only models (in this case, multiple regression and Dirichlet regression) with an Augmented Naïve Bayes model. The Augmented Naïve Bayes model, with its captured indirect effects, results in meaningful differences for these kinds of analyses, and can change the strategic counsel and recommendations delivered to senior leadership, leading to more effective business strategies and programs.
