Organizations around the world are looking to capitalize on what has been shown to be an immensely valuable, and at this point, seemingly endless asset: data.

The importance of being #DataLiterate (in a post-GDPR world)

Data literacy is the key to unlocking opportunity in this post-GDPR world. With only a quarter (24%) of business decision-makers considering themselves to be data literate many may feel up the junction but there is hope.

Direct and Indirect Persuasion

We used the data to understand persuasion, but our results revealed that many of those surveyed do not themselves use data when persuading others. Instead, they primarily apply their knowledge and experience. This proved true whether their organizational culture felt collaborative or autocratic.

AI Will Enhance Us, Not Replace Us

When I was young, way back in the 1970s, my school teacher asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up. My friends and I all wanted to have exciting jobs like being a pilot or a fireman. Then one friend spoke up and told us that computers were going to take our jobs.
