What can we learn from the use of data during the COVID-19 crisis.
We often visit CEO’s, Heads of Transformation, culture “experts” and performance leads, to talk about transformation and performance improvement. We often hear data is the new golden bullet that will help them be smarter, do a better job, drive more revenue or provide a better service.
