Level:  Case Study

We’ve all been there. Resources are required to mature our data management and analytics capabilities – the same resources required to use our capabilities to implement and execute on our business strategy. A balance is needed, and a way to communicate and measure that balance. Jeff Gentry, Head of Group Data at Argo Group, will describe how they are aligning their data & analytics strategy with their business strategy in very concrete ways, aligning 5-year breakthrough goals with next year’s annual objectives and associated metrics in an Hoshin X-matrix style visual alignment. It’s data visualization for business strategy, organized around both business goals and data & analytics capabilities.
