A Jolly Old BI Sponsor

When selecting an executive sponsor for critical business intelligence projects, think of someone with traits like Santa Claus to gain the approval you need. Happy holidays!

Robert Allison just posted his idea of what Santa's ideal dashboard might look like.


 

Gee whiz, Santa has boys naughtier than girls by 7 percentage points.  Well, I guess so, but these days, I'd suspect the girls are catching up fast...

Nice share, Chris. I like the path selected for North America - I also recall a NPR review of Santa.  They consulted UPS about Santa's logistics - they noted the varied path much like the North American path, but global.  Funny how analytical  Ol' St. Nick can be!

Tricia, I really love this -  I think there needs to be a natural joy in the metrics.  Certainly Santa takes joy on developing his lists and planning his route.

I also think some cabaility in getting the word out about those metrics is essential - When we sing Santa Claus is coming to town, we are reminded of the list. Exec sponsors should be visible - coming to town - and reminding teams of the list.

What a terrific idea!

It was between this one and the hat that says Santa Love Me!  :-)

Tricia, I love your Santa analogy. You're absolutely right -- the jolly old fellow does serve as a great example of BI/analytics leadership. (I love the hat, too!)
