Without doing this work, it’s easy for organizations to develop what can only be called a data addiction. This session will highlight the worst ways to get your data “fix,” and the best ways to replace this addiction with a decision-making approach rooted in a shared system of values, process and accountability.​​​

Data is moving from being the source of reports to the centre of a product’s value proposition.
