Reviews and Testimonials

Churn prediction is a data mining technique that predicts if and when a current customer will stop using a particular service or will change to a different organization to fulfill their needs. Such models are invaluable in managing risk and eliminating customer attrition. In this book, the authors attempt to combine the numerical accuracy with the value judgments inherent in social network analysis to provide more predictive churn models for online businesses and organizations. The book uses several case models to show how to create and plan a churn modeling project, how to maintain it to provide accurate and relevant data, and how to analyze the results of their churn models to reduce customer attrition. Although intended for mangers, business analysts and data specialists, the book also provides relevant information for use in an upper level business class.
