Webinar - Stop Visualizing and Start Utilizing: Making Data Work

When:  Apr 25, 2024 from 13:00 to 14:00 (ET)

Data literacy is an explicit and necessary driver of business value, demonstrated by its formal inclusion in over 80% of data and analytics strategies and change management programs. The importance of correct measurements and specific action on those measurements is the driving force of success. In this session, you will learn the key elements to create a culture that is engaged and using metrics to drive the business forward.

Business intelligence tools offer countless ways to slice and dice data. Enamored by yet another way to collect data, many organizations today have built the proverbial "hidden factories" of generating what are merely "Passive Reports". Emailed to countless individuals, posted on antiquated bulletin boards, and taking valuable time to build and distribute, these passive reports are simply not "Driving the business forward." Whether it is too much data, too complex data, or most often, the lack of acute business acumen to process the data, most companies today are drowning in useless reports.

Business data must take the form of an "Active Positioning Device." The most successful organizations today view data as a process, not a report. These organizations recognize that points are not given for colorful bulletin boards and fancy email attachments, but rather a simple and concise system that allows every team within the organization to utilize their performance data to "drive their business forward."

These organizations create a weekly cadence where the organizational scorecards truly educate, facilitate, and motivate every employee toward demonstrative conversations and actions. This view of data as an "Active Positioning Device" allows organizations to recalibrate and eventually eliminate many non-value added reporting functions, thus streamlining and simplifying the data that truly allows the business to understand "winning and losing."
