Is your analytics function ready to help you tackle your business challenges?
A good analytics function can be a huge asset to a business – informing decision making and strategy. However, what if the business feels it could be getting more support?
The team may not necessarily be underperforming (although sometimes it may be the case) but it may more be a question of “can we get more/ what next”? How do you get the best out of the team in the areas that are important to the business? Do you need to invest? Recruit? Or just put in place better ways of working?
