Ensuring that data is a key driver of your marketing strategy and can drive business value is much easier to achieve in theory than it is in practice. There are many blockers and barriers to overcome, from a lack of organisational alignment to a raft of cultural issues within businesses that can lead to the vast majority of data analytic projects failing to deliver their intended value.
To address these issues and reverse this trend you can access this four step process to build an effective data strategy which covers:
- Business drivers
- Analysis and prioritisation
- Current state analysis
- Data strategy
This process will allow you to proceed with any data initiative aligned with the wider business, aligning and progressing as you do – and increase your chances of success.
