My colleague Thomas Oestreich just published this note Must-Have Roles for Data and Analytics, 2017.

Data and analytics leaders cannot master the opportunities and challenges of digital business transformation with yesterday’s roles and yesterday’s organizational design. Now is the time to create new data and analytics roles that are fit for the digital business future.

What you don’t know is that Thomas led an huge effort by our Data and Analytics team that resulted in what is in effect a mini-special report.  This note links to all the other important notes you need to define, explain and in some cases sell, the critical roles for digital business success, driven by data and analytics.

While you can “rate” this note online, please do send specific feedback to the author as well.  We crave direct feedback on how to improve our work. Thanks.
