How to Lead a Data-Driven Culture
Wednesday, June 24 at 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST
In a recent HBR article, Babson professor Tom Davenport asserts a key impediment is the lack of a data-driven culture. And that a data-driven culture must start from the top.
On June 24, 2020, Davenport—one of the world’s foremost experts on analytics—will lead a live, interactive HBR webinar on how senior executives can create a data-driven culture in their organizations.
Davenport will share insights on:
- The role CEOs and senior leaders play in creating data-driven cultures.
- How to persuade a CEO to become more data driven.
- The importance of educational programs, leading by example, and promotions and rewards.

ThoughtSpot Analyst Questionnaire
Recent trends have motivated more and more companies to democratize analytics by putting data in the hands of everyday business users in efforts to make smarter, faster decisions.
Where Analysts have traditionally been relied upon for content creation, like building dashboards and reports, ThoughtSpot encourages Analysts to enable self-service so business users can ask and answer their own questions.
To achieve this, we are always working to help reduce the time and effort required in traditional business intelligence development cycles. Analysts are critical in helping us achieve this lofty goal.
In efforts to better support and elevate Analyst roles within our user base, we are gathering feedback that will help drive our future roadmap.
To do so, we’d love to better understand your role and how you work with data to support business decisions.
If you're an Analyst at your organization who is leveraging ThoughtSpot, we would appreciate it if you could answer these simple questions and give us your thoughts.
We appreciate your time and feedback!
Hope everyone is staying healthy and well out there. Thanks for being apart of our ThoughtSpot community!
