  10. 10. Wisdom is attained throughenlightenment of thesoul…Grass Hoppersoul…How to achieve
  11. 11. Strategic Positioning - enlightenment #1 • He who knows where he must go, will arrive quickly and with fewer steps • BI Success begins with a clear understanding of the reasons that BI is important to the business. • Knowledge of both business drivers and BI program drivers defines the strategic and tactical positioning of a BI program. • It can only work if senior management support the implementation, delivery and use of the program. • A BI strategic Plan must be developed and communicated.Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 11
  12. 12. Strategy Execution - enlightenment #2 Without a process to execute strategy, you could become a statistic Consider the following: • 95% of a typical workforce does not understand its organisation’s strategy • 90% of organisations fail to execute their strategies successfully • 86% of executive teams spend less than one hour discussing strategy • 70% of organisations do not link middle management incentives to strategy • 60% of organizations do not link strategy to budgeting. Is your organisation one of them? >Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 12
  13. 13. Deliver Measured Results – Enlightenment #2 The quality of decision is like the well- timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim • The visible part of a BI program is reports and analysis • Analytics succeed in organisations that use metrics effectively. • When management acknowledge the BI/DW program as both a business process and an investment, it becomes an obvious target of applied metrics. • Established measurable goals and define actionable metrics for the program. This component adds value across the organisation. • The BI team will be built to provide advanced analytics to the organisation.Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 13
  14. 14. Business Initiatives - Enlightenment #3 • He who walks alone carries a heavy load – Successful BI engages the business. – It is a “business first, technology second” endeavour. Technology can support BI, but it can’t create BI. – Find a “white Knight” or “master” – Get them to sell your capability and deliveryCopyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 14
  15. 15. Deliver User First Design – Enlightenment #4 Walk in the steps of your target, live in a day of your target, think like your target • BI/DW products only deliver value when they are used by people conducting business activities. • BI design is focused first for the user experience it drives. Successful BI starts with what the user will see and how they will interact with BI products. • World class BI focuses particular attention to how BI solutions will fit seamlessly into day-to- day business activities. • Define deliverables and agree with business sponsors. Add to BI plan. >>Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 15
  16. 16. Create New Value - enlightenment #5 • Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer – Be very aware of office politics – Understand the players – Observe the game – Know the power players – Be aware of the relationships both visible and hidden – Listen, watch & learn before playing the game. – BI strives to “Don’t just integrate data – enrich information.”Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 16
  17. 17. Human Impacts - enlightenment #6 • Understand your opponent as you understand yourself • BI success and effectiveness depends on people. • From those who define and articulate business strategies to those who employ BI products in their day-to-day work, BI changes jobs. • It creates new roles and responsibilities, demands new skills, and changes the way that work is done. • Business professionals and seasoned IT people will both experience significant change. • Personalities make a difference >>Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 17
  18. 18. Information & Analytics – Enlightenment #7 He who is armed with the right understanding can conquer all opposition • Information is more valuable than data. Data is only the raw material that is used to create information. • Data Warehousing is part of the supply chain for business information. DW technology is “under the hood” stuff that is necessary to power business intelligence. • The power of Business Intelligence is in Analytics and the power to unleash Insight & Foresight.Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 18
  19. 19. Initiate active data stewardship – enlightenment #8 In combat you must join with allies • If data is the raw material from which we create information, then reliability of information directly depends on the quality of the data that is used to produce it. • Good information depends on good data, and good data is a product of good data management, not of good fortune. • One of the keys to BI success is business- managed data and information resources, implemented through active and ongoing data stewardship. >>>Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 19
  20. 20. Initiate Long Term Investment - enlightenment #9 • He who heralds greatness, shall be seen as great •The BI program is long term and a journey. •While quick-strike successes create political goodwill and heroes-for-a-day, a sustainable BI program is one that continuously provides meaningful information, useful analytics, and measurable impact. •It allows the organisation to grow and grows with the organisation. •Communicate the successes •Meet with the business regularly •Use formal and informal communications •Create a call plan >>>Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 20
  21. 21. Reach out - enlightenment #10 • Tread where angels fear, where tigers roar and bears rip you apart • Look for opportunities that others see as problems • Deliver value, quickly and in regular “slices” so action is seen – NO big bangs • The BI touches every part of the business and reach as far as is practical. Be bold - Deliver, deliver. Deliver • Each business process touched by BI is a potential opportunity to receive value, as is each person who uses the BI products. >>>Copyright 2008 Paul Ormonde-James Slide 21
