The Data Readiness Assessment

A critical component to doing the right things with data is understanding your current state of readiness to do the right things with data. The iBusiness Group's data readiness assessment is based on nearly 30 years of hands-on experience in data and analytics with many best practices learned the hard way. The assessment ranges from strategy to execution and from people and process to data and technology to create a report that is both comprehensive and actionable. While this version is targeted toward larger enterprises, even small and mid-sized business will find it valuable. And, through the end of 2023, it's free!

Principle. The goal of this book, when published, is to help data leaders hire wisely at a time in history that is confusing for many organizations and quality talent can be hard to find.
