Fostering Data Literacy and Information as a Second Language

Actively cultivate workforce data literacy to ensure business growth.

Analyst: Valerie Logan

“Poor data literacy” is the second biggest internal roadblock to success, as ranked by respondents to Gartner’s chief data officer (CDO) survey. These barriers are rooted in poor communication and often cause underutilized information assets.

As a data and analytics leader, how can you foster data literacy across the enterprise?

  • Serve as an active champion for data literacy.
  • Establish the vocabulary, and clarify industry “dialects.”
  • Identify areas where data is spoken fluently and those where language gaps exist.
  • Change the way you and your colleagues interact by “speaking data” every day.
