Becoming a data-driven enterprise requires a data-driven culture. Focusing only on educating business and technical staff in new data and analytics (D&A) skills and competencies will not suffice.
Use Gartner’s data-driven attribute model to begin your transformation journey. This model identifies seven core attributes representing the primary distinctions for the beliefs and behaviors that set data-driven organizations apart from others.
Start by discussing these attributes — literate, intentional, accountable, analytical, innovative, communal and empathetic — and identify the biggest impediments to achieving your goals. Identify what must change in order to use data and analytics more effectively in the enterprise.
Start a transformation program that is grounded in a modern approach to change management to change prevailing beliefs and behaviors that are hobbling enterprise goals.
