Data driven. What does that even mean?

Many organizations talk about becoming ”data driven” but few have defined what it means. We believe it means to increasingly involve objective facts in your operational, tactical and strategic decision making.

Objective in this sense means that it is data directly from your business, not data massaged in spreadsheets to provide a politically convenient truth. Operational use of data happens in your everyday business execution, providing products and services to your customers. Tactical use of data is when you use data to better understand how your business execution works and how it can be improved. Strategic use of data is when you use data to inform your view of what business you should be in, which product and customer segments you should prioritize.

Making this happen is in equal parts about data/analytics and about how you work as an organization and outlining the how of it requires too much elaboration for this medium. But know this, the complexity and requirements on your data, your analytics capabilities and you as an organization increases rapidly when you want to progress from being operationally to tactically to strategically driven on data.

As luck would have it, we can help you define what being data driven means for you and how new techniques and technologies can help improve your business with data.
