What Happens When Your Customer Stops Being Human

How to Link Data to Business Outcomes

5/31/2022
Every business likes to claim that it is “data-driven” or at least “data-informed,” but too often, that’s not the way things actually work. Data is relegated to an IT function, siloed and, in some cases, boils down to simply producing more reports and dashboards. There is, however, a better way, and it relies on successfully linking data to business outcomes. In this episode, Andrew White, a Distinguished VP Analyst for Data and Analytics, and Sarah Turkaly, a Principal, Advisory for Data...

Especially if you work at a large, traditional organization, it’s important to find ways to think more creatively — and drive the actions that come out of these new ways of looking ahead. Your — and your company’s — success depends on it. And that’s where a new approach we call “rogue thinking” comes in. Here to discuss the newest research on the practice, how to become a rogue thinker, and the many benefits behind it are Penny Gillespie, a Vice President and Gartner Fellow in our...

4/19/2022

How to Attract and Retain Talent When You Don’t Have All the Money in the World

4/5/2022
Sixty percent of HR leaders are significantly concerned about employee turnover, and 62% of candidates have explored a career change in the last year.

Your Guide to Inclusive Leadership

2/22/2022
Inclusion, as represented by the “I” in the “DEI” acronym, may come last, but it is an essential part of the puzzle — and the value proposition for employees.
