Scaling and Sustaining an Analytics Function

Building an analytics function can be challenging, but there are many helpful sources available for getting started and measuring progress. Once an analytics function is established, scaling to achieve results and impact will require ongoing attention. The real measure of success is whether analytics is embedded into all areas of your company. And once that is accomplished, you will need to be prepared to adapt to a constantly changing environment and continually stay engaged with company leaders to share how your team contributes to your stakeholders’ business objectives. This presentation will review some of the risks and challenges involved in a company’s journey to scale and sustain an analytics function, provide some lessons learned through first-hand experience, and share some thoughts on how to keep analytics relevant in dynamically changing environments.
