Making the most of the analytics: Building a corporate culture for analytic impact

Updated on December 13, 2016

For any business that values growth, adopting a culture that is able to make decisions based on the available data from the past performances of their business in the specific areas of either human resource, marketing outcomes, finance performances or even in the operations department of their corporations is very important. This article seeks to give various ways through which corporates can be able to build a culture that applies analytics for better performance.

The very first way through which a culture of analytic impact can be exploited by a company or an organization is by the senior management of that particular company making sure that they have made decisions on corporate strategies based on analysis of the data provided by their past performance. Leaders that take value in analytics and make a point to understand how to leverage it in driving their strategy proves to be distinct assets to their business. Experiences from employees that are trustworthy, research findings as well as analysis that are well balanced are some of the bases through which businesses that value analytic impact employ to make their decisions. Every business that does not have the kind of leadership that values analytics should seriously consider putting the kind of leadership that does in place, seeing the better performance of those organizations that do.

Making sure that the cross-functional stakeholders of that particular corporation are well aligned with the objectives and the projected outcomes of the business is also another way through which an analytics impact culture is built. Having all those that are part of the organization on the same page on issues such as the time required for changes to be implemented as well as the plan that the company intends to take after certain results are delivered is also important in that, being in agreement avoids time wastage when the results are eventually achieved. Decisions that have already been agreed upon are implemented immediately.

The way through which an analytic impact culture could be built is through the agreement of all the partners to be ready and available to open discussions on insights that sometimes might be controversial as well as their commitment to consistent improvements. The fact that these open discussions provide the company with a new perspective of what has already been experienced in the company makes the management better placed in dealing with such results in the future. The corporations that are always ready to embrace new school of thoughts rather than be dismissive are normally able to derive very outstanding benefits. There has been various evidence from huge global businesses that have experienced major growths upon incorporating new ideas.

Finally, another way through which businesses are able to build a culture for analytics impact is by choosing the right strategies when it comes to their supply chains. Through this, corporations are able to come up with a manufacturing footprint, design proper distribution networks as well as set new inventory targets that are able to produce best results. Applying knowledge given by experts as well as analysis tools that are competitive allows implementation of supply chain strategy to be applicable to all the companies no matter their sizes.

To conclude, it is clear from the above instances that it is indeed possible to be able to develop a corporate culture for analytic impact with results that are quite appealing. Businesses should therefore not be hesitant when it comes to applying analytics in their quest to achieve their targets. Applying the best strategies in order to get there is all they require.
