Today is the dawn of a new era for you.
“Thinking and Winning” replace “Waiting and Grinding.”
No more waiting. No more grinding.
Until recently, turning data into actionable insight was overwhelmingly bottlenecked on two different activities:
- Waiting on a Business Intelligence (BI) team to finish a project – expensive, slow, and frustrating AND/OR
- Grinding on a collection of spreadsheets – repetitive, labor intensive, and chaotic
When stuck in the “Waiting and Grinding” zone, the crucial human capacity for thinking is tightly shackled – there is little time for it, and what little thinking does happen tends to quickly “outrun” the tools’ ability to execute. The dysfunctional reality of data, until today, was one where thinking was both marginalized and unrewarded.
When human beings serve the technology, rather than vice versa, it’s no accident that actual business improvement is also heavily restricted. After working with thousands of clients throughout the world over the past few years, we can confidently say that the world has been living in the “Dark Ages” of data – a place where few organizations had the even the most fundamental information required for improvement, despite floating in an ocean of the necessary data.
Today, however, we have been given us the most precious of gifts: a way to escape the limits imposed by prior technology. To unshackle our thinking. To put the human beings back in charge. To return our focus to the original reason for the entire “data endeavor” – to improve.
