Session 5-B

Chief Data Officers and the Quest for Visible Value

← Back to Agenda

The Chief Data Officer role is still poorly understood in many organizations, and its incumbents often have short tenures. In this presentation Tom Davenport will describe research on Chief Data Officers sponsored by Amazon Web Services and MIT CDOIQ. He will offer eight ways in which CDOs can provide visible value to their organizations. Some of these approaches are contingent upon the level of analytical maturity of the organization; others are relevant to all types of organizations.
