As a “Data Geek” the concept of New Year Resolutions always gets my thoughts going. I find myself wondering how large the enrollment spike was at my local gym, and even more interestingly how long those January memberships stay active. Or perhaps the tobacco industry, I wonder if, and how badly, they feel the impact of New Year Resolutions in their income statements. As for online retailers such as Amazon, it would be fascinating to analyze their product returns since the holidays; I can’t imagine the logistical nightmare that must be!
For many the New Year represents a new beginning and a fresh start, even though that slate appears clean consider the examples above, the truth is that it is already immersed in and around data. What are your goals for 2018? How do you plan to track your progress and measure success? When the low hanging fruit is bare, how will you find opportunities for your organization?
Let 2018 be the year you start leveraging data, supporting your business plan and measuring success. How far can you go in 2018? This is the year to let data propel your organization to new heights!
