Abstract: Data Literacy, or the lack thereof, is one of the biggest inhibitors to success in data and analytic projects. As we move into the 4th Industrial Revolution data is becoming more pervasive and accessible. It’s critical for people to obtain skills to think critically about data to make effective decisions. Too often there is analysis paralysis, the gap between the data being produced and our ability to consume it is growing significantly. It prompts the question: are organizations getting any better at all in making data driven decisions? We know that data literacy will be one of the defining themes of the 4th industrial revolution, migrating us from the information age into the analytics age. More recent research even shows that corporate data literacy has a direct correlation with enterprise value and performance. This presentation and discussion aims to talk about how the data literacy skills gap can be closed, from an individual and organizational perspective, and will help illuminate key characteristics to be developed for a data-drive culture.
