The report found that an analytics culture is the driving factor in achieving competitive advantage from data and analytics, more important than any of the other capabilities measured in the study. The webinar speakers will discuss the components of an analytics culture, and give guidance on how to make those important culture changes in your organization.
- The behaviors, values and decision-making norms that make up an analytics culture.
- The five questions to ask to begin your company's culture transformation
- How analytical innovators answer those questions differently from other, less analytically-driven companies
You'll also get a glimpse into the other report findings, including the results on how the analytical landscape is changing as more and more companies become sophisticated users of data.
