The Leader's Data Manifesto

Your organization’s best opportunities for organic growth lie in data. But most organizations are far from being data driven. We find no examples of fundamental company-wide change, without committed leadership and the involvement of everyone at all levels of the organization.

But for most companies, the reality is far different.

We re-examined our successes and failures, studied models of innovation, Danette McGilvray, Tom Redman, Kelle O'Neal and John Ladley presenting The Leader's Data Manifesto at EDW17diffusion and disruption, conducted an extensive root cause analysis, compared interim explanations with progress in other fields, and were brutally honest in testing these explanations among ourselves.
