Business Builds Data Literate Leaders. Commentary by: Merav Yuravlivker – CEO and Co-founder of Data Society.
“The first step to building data-literate leaders is to empower them to think about data strategically. Many executives and managers shy away from using data because they don’t feel comfortable with it and might not be familiar with the vocabulary and potential. By giving them the opportunity to learn how to leverage data tools, techniques, and strategies, they will apply them to develop a data-informed culture across their organization. We’ve seen our training solutions educate and equip leaders with the skills they need to succeed. And once leaders become data-informed, they create a shift in thinking that leads to more streamlined operations and agile teams.”
