Most managers and professionals have an intuitive appreciation of the power of metrics, but often we find ourselves in organizations that are not as quantitatively-driven as they should be. It's often up to us to help business leadership truly understand the power of data and how to apply it to improving business outcomes.

In this session, join a current CIO and a CDO/consultant who spend much of their time actively engaging CEO's and other executives on how to select the right metrics for managing their business. We will look at the responsibilities of all business professionals in building more quantitative businesses, and how senior leadership can improve their business decision-making and operations through data. We'll share a framework for determining which levers to pull and buttons to push based on the information driven by the business itself. Highlights include:

  • A 4-quadrant framework for evaluating business priorities and corresponding metrics
  • Why the C-suite struggles with information overload
  • How business and data management professionals can drive quantitative culture change
  • Common pitfalls and resource drains
