Beware the Overfit Trap in Data Analysis


It can be exciting when your data analysis suggests a surprising or counterintuitive prediction. But the result might be due to overfitting, which occurs when a statistical model describes random noise rather than the underlying relationship you need to capture. You can guard against this trap by keeping your analysis simple. Be on guard against spurious correlations, and look for relationships that measure important effects related to clear, logical hypotheses. Test for overfitting by randomly dividing the data into a training set, with which you’ll estimate the model, and a validation set, with which you’ll test the accuracy of the model’s predictions. An overfit model might be great at making predictions within the training set but raise warning flags by performing poorly in the validation set. You might also consider alternative narratives: Is there another story you could tell with the same data? If so, you cannot be confident that the relationship you have uncovered is the right — or only — one.

The Effective Executive

In his 65-year consulting career, F. Drucker, widely regarded as the father of modern management, identified eight practices that can make any executive successful. In his seminal HBR article, The Effective Executive, he argued that leadership is not about charisma or extroversion. It’s about these practices: Effective executives ask, “What needs to be done?” They also ask, “What is right for the enterprise?” They develop action plans. They take responsibility for decisions. They take responsibility for communicating. They focus on opportunities rather than problems. And they think and say “we” rather than “I.”

This new book, part of the Harvard Business Review Classics series, offers you the opportunity to make Drucker’s inspiring HBR article a part of your management library.
