Culture of data leaders report identified four key cultural themes from conversations with a subset of digital leaders and laggards. The themes:
Adopt a learning mindset towards risk and continuous learning.
Create shared context through data with collaboration which promotes transparency.
Measure everything and empower the teams to examine data.
Connect data and metrics to align the organisation. Using Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) with team and employee buy in.
Data culture can align an organisation both horizontally and vertically. Culture as a digital transformation agent comes from that learning mindset, transparent access to data an clear metrics.
Using data to make decisions empowers organisations and objective measures helps drive success.
