A Client’s Perspective: Getting the Right Organizational Buy-In to Build a Data-Driven Enterprise

Developing an organizational culture that recognizes and respects the value of using data to drive business is a concept most clients hope to embrace. Great in theory but in reality, most companies are spread across the success spectrum, with few finding just the right mix of factors enabling them to accomplish amazing things.

National Vision, a long-time Protiviti client, is widely recognized as a company that has effectively engaged the entire organization in a strategic approach that has data at its very core. Recently, National Vision’s Kara Bevelhimer, vice president of retail operations, shared her secrets to success in a blog posted to the Americas’ SAP® User Group (ASUG) website. Bevelhimer outlined the steps she took to develop a data-driven enterprise, including:

  • Get your C-suite on board
  • Demonstrate what data can do
  • Find common ground
  • Choose metrics that matter
  • Identify your stewards early
  • Keep developing your data
  • Work your data so it can work for you
  • Set yourself up for self-serve success
  • Let the data lead the story

From implementation to reporting, keeping data at the forefront allows National Vision to strike the right balance between the business and IT’s needs. Read Bevelhimer’s full blog post here.
