Leading Through Uncertainty - Path to the Next Normal

The overall business response to the pandemic put a spotlight on the growing value attributed to data-driven insights as businesses of all sizes accelerated their digital journeys. The role of a CDO in such situations is vital. As CDOs are tasked with driving initiatives forward to improve data governance, promote data literacy and create new data operating models; issues of culture and employee engagement through a prolonged stretch of remote work has created uncertainty of returning to the office.
