Leading with Data — Propelling Organizational Success

To drive growth and remain competitive, more CEOs are utilizing data when making key business decisions. The organizational head of data, or CDO, must be able to rise to the challenge, ensuring data is clean, a strategy is well-defined and the vision is clearly communicated across the enterprise.

Join this interactive session as CDOs share ways to:

  • Create boundaries and safeguards around data; being strategic with roles granted access
  • Update your operating model to tear down silos and generate efficiency
  • Establish a standard for data literacy that inspires innovation and leads to new opportunities for revenue generation
