In this project, I ask you to explore an employee performance data set to analyze the major reasons of employee leavings and suggest ways to retain top talents. You can sign in on the website: Add “Employee Performance data set” from Sample data to your personal folder.

Instruction. You need to write a report covering the following sections:

1.In the Prediction module, set “Attrition” as the target then generate results. Provide a snapshot of the result. (10 points) What are the most three significant factors that influence attrition? (15 points) When two or more factors are combined together, display at least one graph from the results, provide the snapshot(s) (10 points). What further conclusion you would have? (10 points)

2.In the Explore module, ask at least two questions. Provide snapshots of the results. What are the conclusions you can derive from the results? Your questions and answers should be related to employee retention. (40 points)

3.Other than employee performance and retention, suggest at least one use of IBM Watson Analytics in project management. (10 points)

Please use a word processor to compile your report. There is no format requirement, but your report organization should be easy to follow and clearly cover the three sections discussed above. (5 points)
