What does a Decision Support Analyst I do?

Decision science analysts enlist statistical concepts and scientific insights to help promote informed actions by organization leadership. They compile and analyze statistical data and use that information to support recommendations for certain actions and decisions. Using their scientific insight and expertise, they drive strategic planning from a fact-based approach. They provide insight on customer behavior, competitor trends, and overall industry intelligence.

Decision science analysts typically have at least a bachelor’s degree, which would likely be in a math or economics field, although an advanced degree is a plus. They must be well-versed in statistical concepts and processes, and adept at applying statistical techniques to business situations and to guide decision making. They must also be comfortable using data analysis tools and technologies, data visualization tools, and presentation software.
