Digital transformation is being affected in nearly every industry but accomplishing true transformation requires not only technological advancement but reformation of culture and processes to embrace that transformation. At the core of digital transformation is a shift toward data-driven decisioning and action. The tools and capabilities that are produced by data scientists can be very powerful, but without the data translator, without someone to link projects to business initiatives and strategies, achieving enterprise transformation and AI adoption is impossible.

From Data to Execution

You might have heard that there are only three things that matter - execution, execution, and execution. But how do you bridge the gap between strategy and execution? 

We all make decisions. All the time. Especially leaders.

We all want those decisions to be “evidence-based” and are investing resources and efforts in building the data infrastructure, teams, and functionality of our organizations. But how can data and data scientists inform not only the company’s direction and strategy, but also support its execution? 

In this talk, I will present two quick case studies that demonstrate how data can lead to successful execution. The first of which is a past case in which a reliable causal analysis was instrumental to setting the direction of a young mental health startup and securing a 45 million dollar investment in its Series C. The second is a present example of a social impact organization setting its course to reach diverse audiences supporting people who learn and think differently in all areas of life and shape the world for difference.
