Be a Data Punk

Be a Data Punk and give your users flowers made of data and they will love you!

Being a data punk means breaking with convention and being creative, unconventional and bold with data. It's about challenging the status quo and seeing data not just as a series of numbers, but as an opportunity to effect real, positive change. In this spirit, what if we were to give our users "flowers"? No, not the physical kind, but metaphorical flowers woven from data.

From titles to actions: Why true digital leadership needs more than just a fancy title

The truth about titles and tasks in the world of data

In the rapidly advancing digital and AI-driven business landscape, companies often face the dilemma of naming and defining roles, especially when it comes to managing and strategising data and its optimal use and monetisation. The debate around the role of the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) versus the need for a Chief Data Officer (CDO), Chief AI Officer (CAIO) or even Chief Data & AI Officers (CDAIO) is a shining example of this confusion. But does the solution really lie in creating new titles, or should we focus on sharpening up the roles that already exist?

Visualising a model that represents this integration - as illustrated in the "Data Culture" diagram (see below) - provides a clear idea of how companies can reshape their strategy and culture to master this new reality.
