The ‘Information Scientists’ gather knowledge of Management, Technology and Science!
The growing complexity of the world and business has been increasing the negative impacts of the gaps in the decision-making process, and therefore, it is increasingly important to ensure high predictability of decisions, while at the same time reducing risk Associated. The information circulates to a fugacity that prevents the rapid understanding of the same, and therefore, the ability to relate causes with effects, as far as the events are concerned, represents a competitive advantage for the companies.
A Technology has intensified what we can call the dynamism and speed of the surrounding environments, the main cause of which is the increasing complexity. On the other hand, Management and managers have the challenge of guaranteeing the survival and sustainability of their companies, being forced to a constant process of reinvention and adaptation, as the only alternative to last in time. In turn, Science
Consequently, the Manager of the Future finds himself forced to work with facts and not with opinions, representing technology and science, indispensable work tools to achieve success.
In response to the above, the topic we call Scientific Data emerges, with the maximum objective of filling those that are the most important needs of the current Manager when making a decision, based on Management, Science and Technology. This topic is subdivided into two important topics:
• The technological tools of scientific management that provide the management knowledge, the speed and capacity necessary to accompany the world;
•And the role of the professional that we call the Data Scientist, or the Information Scientist, whose role is to find answers / solutions / recommendations related to specific business problems or to more comprehensive questions such as “What if?” What will happen?”.

Cláudia Teixeira, founder and member of the BCI Board, believes that the Business Case methodology scientifically measures decision making in order to avoid unnecessary risks in the management of companies.
At a time when the management system is placed at the center of the most recognized worldwide standard, the IS0 9001, as is the case with the importance of risk analysis, here comes the newly created England Business Case Institute (BCI) in Portugal. BCI arrives in Portugal with the launch of the Business Case Body of Knowledge, which sets the basis for professional certification in this management practice.
Having as its mission “to create value through scientific management”, BCI will certify specialists in Business Case through methodologies, good practices and tools essential to the professional development of managers and middle and senior managers of companies “, reveals Cláudia Teixeira , Founder and member of the BCI Board.
But what, after all, is the Business Case? “It is a management practice that allows to quantify reliably the benefits of any business decision on investments,” says Cláudia Teixeira. “Whether changing the layout of a store chain has a positive impact on sales; If we invest in certain software to improve process efficiency and develop a new product or service “are examples given by the founder of BCI who believes that” the decisions of the daily management of companies can be better structured and better and quantified thanks to the Business Case “. He points out that “the result will be evident because management will become more efficient and will be based on scientifically based and therefore more rational assumptions as opposed to the current decision-making method based on empirical models and the dangerous tentative model -error”.
Cláudia Teixeira also points out that “in these days, the level of criticality of management decisions is such that managers need tools that help them to manage with predictability and less risk” and “Business Case is an agnostic tool, appropriate to All professionals and all types of companies from all sectors of activity, from heavy industry to consulting, “concludes.
