Data must be available

Data and its fluctuations must be accessible, visible, and communicated widely. Organizations that silo and hoard data for a few leaders or teams are weakened. They have lost the untapped strength of their key competitive asset – their people. We’ll share examples of how data availability can benefit organizations.

“Good data, with standard definitions, timeliness, reliable curation, and ease of access can drive policy, priorities, informed risk taking, and decisions. Good data allows an agile organization to execute a plan in response to a briskly changing environment. Bad data drives ambiguity, confusion, chaos, and loss. Bad data is a fog that hides both opportunity and threat.”
