More and more companies are making strategic decisions based on data. More and more companies are making mistakes. They are wrong because they treat data as if they were an oracle, in which data-driven marketing means pressing a button, letting out a number and on that build everything without if and without but. In reality, it is not the data that should guide, but people with the skills to build hypotheses and use the data to refute or confirm them. Especially at a time when many industries are facing new challenges and the most crucial ability is asking themselves what to ask themselves. To do this, you need simple, inclusive and distributed analysis tools, and you need to transform your structure to make the best use of them. The case of Repower illustrates how a proprietary design approach to data interpretation can create a successful product & service strategy.
