John S | VSO | February 1, 2023

The ETL & Data Integration Guide has been a great resource, full of information and insight into the top tools and companies on the market. The interactive report is drillable for deeper understanding, and links to tons of supporting information, videos, and news updates. I couldn't be happier with the Guide, and Daan has been available, responsive, and extremely helpful since I received it. 5-stars! Review about ETL & Data Integration Guide™ 2023.

Hans ter Braak | Director | January 30, 2023

The book is very easy to read because it is written in clear language. That is what appealed to me the most. It is also a confirmation of the knowledge I have gained over the years in BI/AI projects. I think chapters 1 to 7 and section 9.2 form the core of the story, the topics of the remaining chapters are also described in less detail but in more of an overview of the latest trends. Review about Artificial Intelligence book.

Peter Mulder | Information manager | January 30, 2023

What struck me, you didn't just take a detailed and structured approach, you took an exceptionally detailed and structured approach! What appealed to me is that I now have a very complete reference book in the field of BI and AI.

Point of improvement: if your target audience is also at the strategic management level, I would also add some kind of "management summary". Review about Data Science book.

Alexander Proost | January 30, 2023

I am still fairly at the beginning because I want the material to be well absorbed, this means that I should not read it just before sleeping. Even though I am only on chapter 3 so far I find the book very interesting because it has a clear description and good practical examples. I also like the illustrations, this helps me to understand better while reading.

Even though I have not finished it yet, I have already recommended it to colleagues. If I find any points that could be improved I will pass them on to you. Review about Artificial Intelligence book.

I am still reading this Artificial Intelligence book but I would like to already say in advance that it is easy to read, and even easy to follow for a sales person. My employer has its own data capability but we are still struggling to strike the right chord with prospects/customers. I want to change that with the help of this book, it really is a nice piece of work. Review about Artificial Intelligence book.

Patrick Veld | Real estate company | January 25, 2023

I have read this book until the last page. I find it has an enlightening explanation of what an "intelligent and data-driven organization" is and what it isn't. It is illustrated with practical examples. The mix between theoretical models and practice is well balanced. I find the introduction and 'The hands and feet of the intelligent organization' (chapter 5) most valuable. As an improvement point, I would find a step-by-step plan or overview valuable to get started with this in concrete terms. Review about Artificial Intelligence book.

Yolanda Stuijt | docent Business & IT Management | Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences | January 25, 2023

I started the Data Science book and already used it in my classes to explain KPIs. The topics are carefully explained in understandable Dutch. The illustrations are clear, easy to explain and of good quality to put in a ppt slide! If I have an English speaking class I can use the english illustrations. So very useful!!!

I improved one of my classes "BI tools" by using chapter 4 "data science tools and applications". Mapping the BI tools to the decision making process gives a good overview of what where which tool can be used and with the BI applications, I can explain to students what type of analysis takes place in their project.

Section 4.3 is learning material for me because the students learn this ealier in the curriculum. Actually, I use this book as a library to browse and grab what I need! Super nice!!! Review about Data Science book.

Jeroen van der Hagen | Municipality of Rotterdam | January 25, 2023

I really think it's a super interesting book! I enjoyed reading it, especially because most of it is very relevant to my field. I was also looking for a vision on data-driven work, and I think I have found it. I sometimes find it difficult to determine which direction an organization wants to take with regard to data-driven work, and which steps are needed to achieve this. I am convinced that the lessons from this book will help me with this, because the subject matter in the book is very practical for my work.

I work daily with:

- teams struggling with issues around KPIs/dashboarding/data quality
- data warehouse managers who unlock and prepare the data for us, but also to set up connections between our tooling & the data warehouse
- stakeholders I have to convince of the power of data-driven work (Process Mining in my case)
- tooling that makes use of algorithms
- et cetera

So the book is very relevant to me. Have 0% regrets about the purchase. Review about Business Intelligence book.

Tom Cole | Director BI and Data Visualization | Nike | January 17, 2023

The BI & Analytics Guide is a journey, meaning tons of detailed information. In my work, I was able to compare ratings for multiple solutions across the same attribute against over 350 attributes. Also included are links to other material on the internet that allow you to go deeper than your favorite search engine results will find. All in a simple web interface. The research capabilies of this guide are many and matched what I needed. The value I got from using the guide is that it brought me to a conclusion I was not expecting.

Tibor Olgers | Consultancy Group | January 1, 2023

I think your e-book is terribly good. It should be required reading for every dga/ceo. We have all our clients create a KPI dashboard (process indicators) and scoreboard (results and performance indicators).

Entrepreneurs have an awful lot of trouble keeping focus in that endless stream of to-do's. Concrete and well-chosen KPIs help tremendously in keeping on track. While I think the depth you offer in the e-book goes beyond what the average dga needs to know, that depth of knowledge is hugely valuable to us as mentors to those dga's.

Renee Musch MPIM | MvR & Partners | December 8, 2022

I am very positive about this handbook AI because all topics are covered briefly and powerfully without too many technological terms. It is well-organized and understandable, and as far as I am concerned also engaging because of the case histories among other things. The first chapters (1 to 6) appeal to me the most, chapter 9 is also good. Chapters 8 and 9 are well concrete. Chapter 10 could be more "trend watching," but really everything is in the book so it is mostly complete. Review about Artificial Intelligence book.

With the SMART KPI Toolkit, we have greatly reduced the number of KPIs and goals within our organization from 80 to about 15, giving us much more control over those factors that really matter (measured in business results). Passionned Group then provided us with excellent guidance in setting up and implementing a KPI system/dashboard. Review about The SMART KPI Toolkit 2023.

A valuable and powerful Lean course. The team gave valuable feedback at the debrief. People are already showing different behavior. They are interacting differently, naming improvements more concretely and trying to quantify improvements. We will now work to see how we can implement this further with other teams within Lapperre Hearing Systems. Review on Lean Training Green Belt. Review about Passionned Academy.

Marco van Steenbruggen | Enexis Groep BV | October 28, 2022

Good book that takes you from A to Z through what it takes to (continuously) improve an organization using data and all its applications. The book shows what it is really about and that is not the (ICT) technique but the (human in the) organization. The technique is also rightly addressed but you keep feeling the essence throughout the book. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to improve his or her organization using data & Business Intelligence. Review about Business Intelligence book.
