There has been a lot of news coverage lately around the topic of creating a data-driven culture within an organization. The fact of the matter is a data-driven culture is crippling. We tried to create a data-driven culture too, but ultimately found that our real transformation came by using data as inputs into a real Analytics driven-culture. A culture that values true experimentation, understands failure is the price of discovery, and actually makes use of analytic outputs for decision-making.
While there is common agreement about the power and potential of data science and advanced analytics, many organizations struggle with how to incubate and sustain a curious and innovative Analytics-driven culture. It is a concept that continues to perplex organizational leaders and prevents organizations from reaching the next level of performance. While often viewed as an organizational problem to be addressed by senior leaders, we have seen first-hand how every data scientist in an organization has an important role to play. Leadership from the top is critical, but the support of all data scientists is needed to create a cultural change.
As Booz Allen Hamilton formed its 500+ data science team, we faced some challenges in creating our own Analytics-driven culture. In the spirit of sharing, I wanted to share a few key practices (and some lessons learned) from our own experiences. These practices helped us sprout and grow analytics as a central cultural tenet.
While these are just a few examples of how we have approached our journey to an Analytics-driven culture and the benefits we have received, we hope that the ideas presented here inspire you and offer some practical ways to help you get started on your journey to an analytics-driven culture. Remember that everyone in the organization has a role to play from organizational leaders to data scientists. It’s through the collective effort of these groups that you can achieve an Analytics-drive culture.
