- Start with available data
Even with limited data, you can create actionable insights. If you add more data, your insights will get richer.
- Assess the data quality
But do not strive for perfection. There are creative and statistical ways to deal with missing data.
- Focus on sustainable impact
You can drown in data and get stuck in analysis. Focus on the areas in which you can create the most impact.

A picture tells more than 1000 words. Tell your story in simple visuals in a way you create urgency for your business leaders.
- Increase the data analytics capabilities
Data analysis requires skills and domain expertise. Team up with IT and Marketing, and leverage all capabilities.
