Strategy: Maintaining momentum in mature data and analytics functions
In year one, data and analytics functions benefit from the excitement of being the latest new thing within an organisation, as well as the opportunities afforded by low-hanging fruit.
In year two, working practices become embedded, which should lead to more efficient ways of working, but can also codify unresolved issues.
By year three, unless the data office and analytics team has been show to bring significant benefit and transformation to the organisation, it can face deep challenges from the business, even the prospect of being broken up or down-sized.
Over dinner with a peer group of a dozen senior practitioners, members will be able to discuss freely the real reasons why data and analytics functions are able to maintain momentum or face being re-organised. Featuring a leader who has been through several iterations of the same issue - and lived to tell the tale!
