As Thomas Edison said, “The value of an idea lies in the using of it.” The same goes for data and the insights derived from that data. Unfortunately, most organizations struggle to become insights-driven. They don’t effectively use their data-based insights to create differentiation and competitive advantage. Why not? Because they’ve focused on their technology, and not enough on their people.

Employees don’t recognize data. Decision-makers aren’t comfortable going against their gut instincts, even when presented with new insights. These skills are not innate; they must be learned. To be insights-driven, organizations must build data literacy. And in these uncertain times, data literacy skills are now more important than ever.

This webinar will help you:

  • Understand what it means to be an insights-driven organization.
  • Explore the need for data literacy across the entire organization.
  • Learn about key competencies such as recognizing data and its value, interpreting data visualizations, and insights-driven decision-making.
  • Identify potential opportunities for partnerships to expand and enhance your insights capacity.
  • Understand how data literacy skills can help organizations navigate uncertainty.
