Here on the Data Driven Daily, we cover a wide range of data tools, ranging from metrics to decision frameworks. However, in the end, data is just a tool for people to make decisions about their business. Data can provide insight and context, but people need to interpret, make decisions and take actions.
Often, as a data driven person, the hardest part of using data is convincing the other people in your business to trust and use data. Even if you have a perfect understanding of your metrics, if others in your organization don’t use data or listen to your insights, the value of that data will be lost.
Luckily, there are many ways to help your organization get better at using data and begin to become data driven themselves. We’ll talk about some of those this week.
Tomorrow we will get started by talking about how to recognize the signs of good (and bad) data organizations.
