New technology, familiar problems!

Are you struggling with issues of adoption and user engagement?

 We have  a great BI tool   but don't know what to look at
 We have  plans for a data strategy   but  can't agree on where we will get value
 We have  master data management   but  our users don't get what they need
 We have data governance   but no one takes ownership
 We have  a team of data scientists  but  they can't find the data they need
 We have  a lot of data   but  can't get the insights we need
 We have self-service BI   but our users aren't engaged
 We have  spent a lot on data analytics   but  we don't trust the insights
 We have  a data-driven strategy   but but no one is following it

 

It's easy to focus on what you can see - data, technology, activities - but what you can't see can sink your data management efforts.

How people respond to your activities depends on how you make your actions relevant to them. 

Data culture must be understood to enable adoption of your data strategy

Culture eats strategy for breakfast!

- Peter Brucker

Data culture is not one size fits all

It's tempting to believe that your business has its own homogenous data culture.

The reality is that each business area, each division, and even each team can have its own set of values for how information is used. By building an understanding of these differences we can help you to see how the same data across the organisation can be seen, used, interpreted and managed differently.

In a culture misalignment, stakeholders simply do not understand or accept each other's mission. The good news is that most areas are more similar than they are different. 

We must understand both the similarities and differences to enable a cohesive data culture, that will in turn drive the adoption of a cohesive enterprise data strategy.

Similarly, it's tempting to jump straight into data or technology without understanding what soft skills must be developed to make the technology work for our business.
