September 17, 2019

About half of organizations are failing to apply the majority of their data analytics work to driving business outcomes. And that’s true for use cases across the spectrum — from marketing to operations, CX to supply chain, research to behavioral analytics — and across industries. This applies to all areas of the organization: business, IT, regions, and geographies. In this webinar, find out how organizing as a center of excellence (COE) can help your organization break through the barriers.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn the differences between centralized (shared services), decentralized (distributed), and COE (hub-and-spoke) org models.
  • Learn that operating as a COE is a way of working, not “just” an org chart. We look at what’s common to COEs and what can — and should — vary based on your situation. Hint: A focus on human skills, from storytelling to resilience, is key.
  • Learn about the five critical enablers of a COE’s success. One enabler: Stop producing deliverables that no one’s using to take action! That’s a way to get time back for changing the way we work.

Target audience level: Beginner and intermediate.
