The benefits of adopting data-driven decision-making have been proven over and over, yet businesses and organizations are still not making the transformation to truly embrace a data culture. There are unique challenges associated with this organizational culture shift, but doing so also brings tremendous value to the organization.

In this presentation, Suzannah will discuss the challenges associated with cultural change at the organizational level, the benefits of adopting a data culture, as well as the typical barriers that prevent organizations from fully embracing and implementing a data culture.
