Given the times we're living in, I wanted to know: "what do Data & Analytics leaders need most right now when it comes to driving their Data Literacy and culture work"?
So, I asked.
In this month's webinar we discussed:
1) What I learned about their views and intentions around the role of Data Literacy.
2) How these leaders are balancing new demands with real constraints and challenges.
3) What they said that they need most, and how I'm going to help them.

What are the key steps to get started?
