New Year’s Resolutions….

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!

  1. I have a resolution for 2018! Asterisk Intelligence inspires 50 CUs to start Business Intelligence Teams (formal charters). Start counting AI team and document the teams. There is a bonus in meeting this goal for every AI team member, and some credit unions too. Let’s get organized love to pay out some dollars at next years CEO Strategies Conference (November 2018)

  2. My big resolution is to clean up our data. For example, our business account naming structure has changed over the years and it’s a mess. We also have a large indirect membership base currently segmented by a new reason code- I’d like to change this to be able to use more of the analysis tools currently available. Confession: It’s Q2 and I have not started the clean up project yet. Time to set some hard deadlines to achieve my resolution!

  3. Thomas, this kind of thing geeks me out too. All the trending for end of year, where we want to see ourselves by end of the current year. Were there any big anomalies? Did we totally over achieve in some areas? So far my resolution of getting our BI team started isn’t in place yet, but hoping soon! Keep pushing us.
