Beyond Data Science: Strategic Change Management Considerations


Why do so many companies struggle to incubate and activate an effective big data and advanced analytics organization? Much of the time, failure to capture value is due to inadequate change management strategies resulting from (1) improper project lifecycle, (2) lack of iterative improvement / test and learn, and (3) inability of business and technical leaders to work in lockstep. I discuss these strategic considerations and more, tying various outcomes to case studies I have observed in industry.
