Abstract

There is no doubt that to be a full-fledged analytical competitor, you need the CEO in your corner. However, there is also no doubt that almost any employee can move an organization in a more analytical direction. In this chapter you will learn how you can make your organization more analytical, advocate for more fact-based decision making, and encourage your employees to become analytical leaders themselves, regardless of your position. By describing the typical attributes of analytical leaders and examining four case studies of analytical leaders at different levels of their organizations, the authors of the groundbreaking Competing on Analytics reveal the patterns of behavior that will take your company from analytically impaired to analytically competitive. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 4 of Analytics at Work: Smarter Decisions, Better Results. This chapter is excerpted from ‘Analytics at Work: Smarter Decisions, Better Results'.
