Data has never been more important.
The more we understand what's happening right now, the faster we can adapt, and the better we can anticipate future disruptions and opportunities.
Companies that invested in digital tools, advanced analytics, and data literacy have not only navigated the COVID-19 pandemic more successfully—they've empowered more flexible, resilient cultures.
Chief Data Officers say culture change is the number one inhibitor to progress.
Data, tools, and technology are nothing without people. People make the culture. And culture makes all the difference.
A modern culture of data is one of experimentation and innovation, where people have the power to accelerate business outcomes with rapid insights. For most companies, that’s a profound shift, so we’ve broken it down to five elements—starting with the vision.
Next, your business needs a holistic data foundation that empowers people to see, trust, and use data. The elements that make up this foundation are deeply entwined.
Lastly, data must be embedded in ways of working—behaviors and operations across the organization. This final element of the modern culture of data wraps around all the others. When data informs every decision as a matter of course, the culture thrives.
Let's get started
It’s never too soon to start modernizing your data culture. In 2018, Forrester Research found that insight-driven organizations grow seven times faster than global GDP—or 27% annually. Considering that only a small minority of organizations have achieved the vision of analytics at scale, the ability to ask and answer better questions is an invaluable competitive advantage.
To jumpstart your transformation, Slalom can help you assess your organization's maturity across the five elements of our modern culture of data framework. We offer a range of offerings from strategy workshops to deep-dive assessments, capability definition, and co-creation.
A lot of companies can pull reports, but the biggest value comes when you embed insights into a person’s day-to-day way of working.
