Creating a Data-Driven Culture Can Change Your Whole Game
By Sam Lewis
“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”
No one should need to be convinced the value of good data. It gives you the confidence to make decisions quickly and with less risk, it allows you to measure your success, and it lets you know when you need to adjust your course. But there’s a difference between knowing the value of data, and creating a culture around it. A data-driven culture is a culture where everyone quantifies their actions as much as possible, and asks themselves how their teams are having a tangible impact on the business. It turns your entire organization into a squad of analysts. But creating a data-driven culture isn’t always easy. Here are five steps that will help you get there.
Keep in mind that a data-driven culture is all about feedback. Have a standing meeting where your team can share what their data shows, to keep track of progress as you go and to maintain a connection with data-driven results. Being transparent about what the data reveals about actions you took, which empowers everyone to start the process again.
