In this episode, we talk to Tim Carmichael, the Head of Data Transformation at Southern Water, about the importance of leadership buy-in to support a data-enabled organisation.
We cover the building blocks for a successful data strategy, and Tim’s three stakeholder personas ‘Glazy’, ‘Rolly’ and ‘Sparkly’, following from his experience as Chief Data and Analytics Officer for The British Army. We also discuss getting consensus and funding for your data and analytics initiatives, as well as other tactics to help get buy-in and generate momentum.
