Data is the new oil! But truly data-driven cultures require an overarching data culture that encompasses a few fundamental elements, such as high-quality data, broad access and data literacy as well as appropriate data-driven decision-making processes.

Leveraging Data as a Strategic Asset (Part 2)
Another win can come from data visualization skills. It doesn’t make any sense to spend a huge amount of effort on data collection and analysis, only to fail, and lessen the data’s impact, at the finish line. Just a small amount of data visualization training goes a long way and can greatly enhance people’s presentation skills and make insights clearer, more digestible and ultimately likely to be used. Too often, charts are full of visual junk and unnecessary clutter and annotations that detract from the key point. Or, inappropriate chart types are used — such as multiple pie charts each with a large number of segments — or, a color scheme is chosen that makes it near impossible to interpret.
