Don’t let the title deceive you, this book isn’t lean by any means, but choc-full of pragmatic information on how to adjust your analytical strategy to follow only the information that is relevant to your business. For me, Lean Analytics by Alistair Croll, Benjamin Yoskovitz, opened me up to a whole new way of thinking, and how to align business focus by removing a lot of the analytical noise that does nothing for you.
