Open communications and getting closer leads the pack now, which is what I would have expected, though much sooner in the poll's lifecycle than week three. Business leaders may not love analytics, but they've recognized it's not going away any time soon.

Gone---but why?

Very surprised by the high placement on "they want us gone" for those that voted in that category can you tell us a little more?

@Louis. Yes, the poll is for community members to report on what they are seeing in their companies. I've seen a variety of surveys along these lines over the past couple of years, and the results have been mixed. So, I'd love to hear from the A2 community about what they are seeing in their daily work.

@Terry   Agreed.  No doubt The poll will depend on a broad range of factors, as you mention industry and companies in particuliar amongst them.  It will be interesting to learn how others feel in industries in and outside of finance.

I will be looking forward to hearing views from the community on this one.

Good point about $, Louis. But I think the poll response is also dependent on the business sector we're talking about, and then of course the company in question.

This will be an interesting poll to watch as more responses come in.

I think this quesiton really depends on what type of analytics you are providing - if you are a financial analyst and your efforts contribute to more money into the coffers than you are loved, if your efforts cost money (as in efficiency measures) then more than likely you efforts will be questioned, you will spend endess hours defending your findings only to have them either partially carried out or ignored completely.

Which underscores an issue Analytics has had from day one - The ultimate objective of business and business leaders - namely to make as much revenue as possible and keep it which is why financial analyst who do this have such job security.
