Responsibilities
• Planning & Performance:

• Support in the development of Motion Picture Group strategic plans and learning agendas, identifying where analytics can be of service.

• Create and deploy an analytics roadmap that addresses the most driving needs of the Motion Picture Group and where data is most likely to provide value.

• Partner with Data Strategy, Products & Platforms and Engineering to set and execute on an infrastructure and tool roadmap that will enable analytics goals to be accomplished.

• Support leadership in the creation and deployment of MPG performance metrics and benchmarks as a key part of the Strategy & Innovation vertical.

• Create and apply a method of evaluating ROI of analytics initiatives, with a focus on application of learnings and potential impact to the Motion Picture Group.

• Create and manage an analytics budget and organizational plan based on Motion Picture Group needs and priorities. Advocate effectively when more resources are required.

• Enable staff and vendors to operate at peak performance, creating a culture where people feel safe to be their authentic selves, work autonomously, raise concerns and ''fail fast and often.''

• Oversee and coach analytics team in delivery of day-to-day insights focused on informing creative decisions, improving marketing campaign feedback loop, and spotting trends in title-level sales performance data.

• Thought Leadership:

• Serve as a thought leader across the organization, sharing information and resources via a range of channels in a way that generates real impact. Support analytics skills development across the Motion Picture Group to enable richer intelligence and broader application of insights over time.

• Build relationships with subject matter experts inside Lionsgate/Starz, across entertainment and in other sectors to benchmark progress, generate ideas and remain abreast of the latest vendors, technologies and tools. Execute regular pilots that experiment with new potential solutions to existing problems. Assess where the ''juice is worth the squeeze'' and work with team to onboard.

• Assess prepared reports currently delivered on a standing basis. Reimagine, automate or eliminate low-impact work and make room for higher-value deliverables.

• Stakeholder Management:

• Engage with stakeholders across the Motion Picture Group to understand over-arching business and creative questions. Steer discovery conversations to get to the underlying assumptions, biases and unknowns. Translate findings into analytics questions.

• Define and proactively share project expectations, updates and timelines with stakeholders across the organization, being upfront about which questions data cannot (yet) answer, when deadlines are not realistic or where the time/effort investment needed to get an answer isn't worth the likely result.

• Communicate findings and recommendations to stakeholders clearly and confidently, adapting the delivery of the message to speak to different audiences while remaining consistent on the message itself.
