The barriers to adding value

The biggest barriers to adding value through better use of data

Given that the main goal of this course is to “give you the confidence to start adding value through better use of data”, I am keen to understand what is the barriers preventing you from adding value through better use of data?

These are a few of the barriers that are often shared when it comes to getting started:

  1. Lack of clarity on the value that can be delivered

  2. Lack of leadership to identify and deliver the opportunity

  3. No foundation capabilities to built upon

Let’s use the workbooks to bring this alive. Please use your workbook to indicate how relevant these barriers are to you. Image illustrating each of the barriers with a checkbox to indicate relevance to your specific circumstances Barrier check boxes (Click to expand)

This activity might raise some questions that you might want to post in the comments section below for a group discussion.

We will revisit this in week 4 to see if your responses have changed as a result of the conversations you have throughout the course.
