Using Automation to Deliver a Unified Data Strategy.
According to Harvard Business Review – New leaders who achieve a quick win are rated 20% higher by their bosses than those who do not. A quick win reassures your boss that it was the right decision to give you the job, and it also sends a positive message to the people who are working for you (it’s OK to follow you because you know what you’re doing), and the people who work alongside you (you’re going to make a difference).
So what does this mean for CDOs and their data teams?
During this 30-minute webcast, Simon speaks with Ramesh Pannakal, Customer Success Manager at WhereScape, to discuss some of the quick wins Simon has made in his position of interim CDO at large organizations and shares his thoughts on how CDO’s can rapidly add value to the business whilst simultaneously motivating the people that work for you.
