Ensure you have a Communication Plan and Measure Your Success

Guest Blog - Tip #5 (of 5) - Ensure you have a Communication Plan and Measure Your Success

Navigating Business Intelligence Adoption in Your Organisation

Ensure you have a Communication Plan

  • Give Regular Updates on the progress consistently. As discussed above, share success stories, highlight milestones, and address any challenges transparently and quickly.
    • Share Case Studies as covered above.
    • Deal with setbacks quickly and efficiently. If there’s a problem with data or the UX, tackle them above everything else.
  • Measure your Success
    This is an odd one, as it’s common sense, right? You’re running a BI project, and yet, if you’re honest, I wonder how many BI projects measured their success via KPIs and Metrics. Not many would be my guess! These are essential, though, so consider:
    • KPIs and Metrics: Define the OKRs and KPIs for BI adoption for your project. This could be usage, it could be the number of reports and dashboards produced and the number of legacy reports/spreadsheets that have been removed from service. A must is data quality, too.
    • Feedback Loops: Collect feedback from users. Are they finding value? Are there pain points? Use this input to refine the plan. Add Surveys to your reports and dashboards and encourage their use. Learn from the points made.

Do you agree with the above? What is your experience?
