Abstract: Organizations with a strong data culture can synthesize information effectively, and glean insights at scale, giving them an incredible edge over their competition. Some of the challenges that organizations face in their efforts to build a data-driven culture are around data silos, data hygiene, data transparency and data literacy.
To solve for these challenges, I will share a three-pronged strategy and a powerful framework that organizations can use to weave data-driven values into the fabric of the organization’s being and build a strong data-culture.
