About Tripping Over Data

Manufacturing companies have been struggling with too much data and not enough actionable intelligence for a long time. All too often, the most important knowledge is hidden in plain sight. It is hidden because it is locked up in stand-alone business systems. Key stakeholders struggle to connect the dots between all these systems in a timely manner. As a result, the drive to create a data-driven culture drowns in its own data.

Tripping Over Data explores this paradox. Framed around a fictional account of a divisional supply chain leader on a visit at his best performing plant, this ebook paints a picture of the data challenges manufacturers face and how they impact business performance. It will give your developing leaders a vocabulary for speaking about data and a simple path through the paradox.
