Evolution in the Boardroom: Building a Data-Driven Culture

[vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_separator type=”normal”][vc_column_text]Data can be one of the organizations most powerful tools and serve as an accelerator to empower innovation.  It is critical that a company capture and analyze new information and trends that could impact its business outcomes. Most organizations today are data-rich. The amount of digital data that exists is growing quickly and has changed the way we live.  It is believed that just a 10% increase in data accessibility by a company could result in significant additional net income.

So, how can boards ensure that data is being leveraged to optimize decision-making? Our panelists will provide a modern view of the challenges faced by board members and company leaders in mobilizing a data-driven culture and practical tools to deliver enterprise-wide advancement in data reporting and analytical maturity.

Our expert panelists will discuss:

  • how your organization can maximize available data to drive efficiencies, build its brand and align itself with ever-changing market dynamics
  • if the data architecture of the organization is optimized and structured to enable the business
  • what questions board members should be asking to turn the company’s data into valuable insights
