Elements of Data Strategy

A Handbook for the Analytics Manager

About the Book

As the world moves further into developing data and AI-powered solutions, a new challenge emerges. Leaders begin to recognize that such efforts can hardly come to fruition without a plan - the missing piece called data strategy.

Designing it falls into the hands of a new role - the data strategist. Managing such complex work requires a blend of skills across disciplines and applying them throughout an organization. This book defines the elements needed, their relationships and provides blueprints for conducting the required activities.
