Lorien ranks without question as one of the best hiring decisions I've ever made.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Lorien Pratt during my time as co-founder and managing director of research with Stratecast Partners, a division of Frost & Sullivan. We hired Lorien to serve as leader of our Operations Support Systems (OSS)/Business Support Systems (BSS) strategic analysis practice. Lorien was an absolutely outstanding program leader who excelled at developing insightful analysis and conveying it effectively to top executives at our clients. Lorien is a rarity: she possesses extensive technology and business acumen, and is very effective at communicating her thoughts in easy-to-understand fashion. During my career I’ve had the opportunity to hire a variety of people into a variety of roles, and to work closely with them. Lorien ranks without question as one of the best hiring decisions I’ve ever made.
Over the past few years I’ve had several opportunities to meet with Lorien and her colleagues at Quantellia. I have been very impressed with their approach and capabilities. I highly recommend her.

When I was a little girl I once spent a week disassembling a telephone down to the nuts and bolts. Worried at the dangerous parts she saw, mom called the phone company, who said "it's fine, but if she puts the phone back together, then tell her to apply for a job."

These days, I still enjoy understanding how things work, and my favorite "dissassembly" tools come from data analysis and machine learning. But now I put them back together.

And I've learned that it's how the pieces work together in an integrated system that really matters, not what they do when apart.

I invented inductive transfer and am evangelizing decision intelligence. I lead machine learning and decision intelligence projects worldwide.
