How do we develop the next generation of data leaders?
Chief data officer (CDO) has been a breakthrough role in getting the voice of data into the boardroom. For the most part, the people who currently hold this title are established data and analytics practitioners who have moved into a management role to ensure the growth and adoption of data by their organisation.
To sustain this trend, a new generation of data leaders needs to be developed who will expand the footprint of this department both internally and also into those organisations where it has yet to be established. With the nature of the CDO role continuing to evolve, this roundtable will consider how best to build the next cohort.
Should the CDO of the 2020s still be a skilled practitioner, or does the focus need to move towards managerial and leadership skills? How should the industry make this role visible as part of a career path and what are the benchmark positions against which candidates can compare it as an option?
