Welcome to the executive handbook to Value Driven Data. This book is a condensed version of the main book, tailored specifically for business leaders who want to understand how to derive value from data. It provides an introduction to the world of data and its potential for creating economic opportunities, driving beneficial actions, and improving outcomes in countless ways.

The focus of this handbook is on three simple things that underpin the quest for unlocking value from data: vision, value, and obstacles. We start by being clear about our vision and identifying and capturing data visions. From there, we delve into approaches for identifying, capturing, and communicating data value.

Separating these two parts are chapters focused on the obstacles that stand between vision and value. Here we explore challenges related to delivering tangible value in this new world of data.

This handbook offers actionable strategies for effective data value implementations including methods for aligning data storytelling with tangible business needs and techniques for incentivizing positive change. It also features cutting-edge examples relating to digital transformation, data strategy, and AI-driven methodologies.

Whether you’re a company executive or a business leader looking to supercharge your journey into the future through leveraging your most valuable asset -data- this handbook will provide you with thought-provoking yet hands-on tools.

Please note that this is an executive introduction to the main book. The main book, which includes extended insights into unlocking data value through vision alignment, overcoming obstacles, and predetermining value, is available here.
