I spend a lot of time in malls when I’m in Metro Manila.
Business meetings at coffee shops.
Staff meetings at restaurants.
Getting exercise why walking to hit my FitBit goal.
I see a lot of movies.
And I am not alone.
Malls are where everyone goes. To beat the heat, to meet up with friends, to conduct business, and of course to shop and eat.
Given that I spend so much time in malls, I think a lot about the analytics that can take place behind the scenes.
Or in many cases, the apparent lack of analytics.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love the Philippines.
The heart and spirit of the Filipino people is the primary reason I set up a business here.
But I do sometimes wonder, how much better things could be in my adopted home if there was more widespread use of analytics in decision-making.
The malls are full of great examples of decisions that are pretty much done without much data analysis.
At least that is how it appears to me.
So in this series of blog posts I will discuss several topics that come to my mind when being in a mall in Metro Manila and how I would go about using analytics to investigate my observations.
