Deployment and implementation refers to the process of prescribing or taking action based on interpretation of data-analysis findings. This phase requires an (a) understanding of stakeholder needs, (b) an understanding of the business context, and (c) knowledge of change management theories and practices. It is during this phase of the HR Analytics Project Life Cycle (HRAPLC) that prescriptive analytics are often fully realized. Further, when deploying and implementing data-informed practices or interventions, it is advisable to apply strong change management processes and practices, as failure to do so could lead to resistance to the prescribed actions and a reduced likelihood of success. Ultimately, this phase of the HRAPLC leads to new questions, resulting in a return to the Question Formulation phase and starting the HRAPLC once more.
