Many analytics projects fail to deliver the outcomes hoped for. Without the culture, resources and focus on data your analytics may fall into that trap. McKinsey highlights 7 key issues

1) Data culture must be a decision culture

  • Stay true to business problems
  • Focus on outcomes and business objectives
  • Keep in mind the end goal

2) Data Culture, the C-Suite and Board

  • The CEO must focus on beg decisions so analytics must deliver big decision making value
  • You need the Board's backing on data
  • All comes down to transparency and data hat adds value

3) Democratisation of data

  • Stimulate demand for data at grassroots
  • Embed analytics in core applications
  • All personas and roles that need to make better decisions

4) Data culture and risk

  • Effective data culture puts risk at the core
  • If you don't have a solid foundation don't use the data

5) Culture catalysts

  • Someone's got to lead the charge
  • You need people who can bridge between data scientists and on-the-ground-operations

6) Sharing data beyond company walls?

  • Ecosystems assume greater value delivered from assembling greater breadth of shared data
  • But data leaders see data as your crown jewels
  • So ensure sharing data is a valid strategic imperative for long term growth

7) Marrying talent and culture

  • Need to strike balance between injecting new employees and transforming existing ones
  • Take a sharp look at the skills your data team needs
  • What decisions must your operational team make- what data delivers the actionable insights?
