Kristina McElheran, Assistant Professor of Strategic Management at the University of Toronto, and an MIT IDE Visiting Scholar, discusses ways to navigate in the realm of data-driven decision making. She assertts that “new technologies require analytical tools and frameworks, familiarity with data, and an ability to put data, market requirements, and firm strategy together to form insights. For most people, this is very new; and it’s also new for the people they work with and manage. As a result, there is a huge skills gap at many different levels within firms.”
