Building an
Analytics-Driven
Organization
Organizing, Governing, Sourcing and
Growing Analytics Capabilities in CPG
Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies realize that Analytics is a
required capability to compete effectively in today’s marketplace. Yet,
few have succeeded in capturing the business value they wanted or
expected from their Analytics investments. Our recent research with
CPG executives revealed that while companies have pockets of localized
Analytics capability, fewer than half have ingrained Analytics or believe
it to be a differentiating capability within their organization. What’s
more, companies continue to struggle with fundamental issues related
to Analytics spanning data, methods, organization and technology
(Figure 1). And, Analytics capabilities are deployed frequently to
generate hindsight—“rearview” descriptions of what happened—rather
than forward-looking insights that can be used to make operational,
managerial and strategic decisions.

We believe these challenges can be addressed
if companies take the time to develop an
enterprise-wide Analytics strategy and
underpin it with an operating model designed
to harness the power of Analytics. Taking this
type of issue-to-outcome approach is critical
because it puts the focus where it should
be: on tying Analytics directly to making
decisions, taking action and delivering value
for improved business performance (Figure 2).
To achieve these business outcomes, an
Analytics operating model needs to meet
three core requirements.

1. Infusing Analytics into the
Decision-making Process.

3. Sourcing and Deploying
Analytics Talent.

To embed an “Analytics first” philosophy into
the business, CPG leaders are well served by
starting with the business issue first, then
defining the most relevant data and analysis
and then reengineering decisions to use the
resulting analysis and insights.

Analytics talent is hard to come by, and
analysts who have industry-specific
experience are even harder to find.
CPG companies need to revise talent
management processes to reflect this reality
in the sourcing, development and recognition
of Analytics talent.

2. Organizing and Governing
Analytics Capabilities
across the Organization.
Specifically designing the most appropriate
Analytics organization construct and
allocation of resources based on the maturity
and needs of the business, where Analytics
insight will deliver the most value and the
closest positioning to decision-making.
A critical element of this is the ability to
effectively manage supply and demand for
Analytics services across the business.

While there is no one “right” operating model
that works for every company, there are seven
components that should be addressed to
shape the appropriate operating model:
•	 Sponsorship & Governance
•	 Organization Structure & Talent
Management
•	 Data to Insights
•	 Capability Development
•	 Insight-driven Decisions
•	 Outcome Measurement
•	 Information & Data Management

Section I:
Infusing Analytics
into the Decisionmaking Process

she has the opportunity to leverage Analytics
insights to improve assortment, price and
promotion effectiveness. Changes for improved
performance require fact-based discussion,
decisions and actions across brand marketing,
sales planning, field sales, supply chain and of
course the retailer. To ensure that differentiated
Analytics-driven insight can be acted upon
at speed, end-to-end process assessment and
reengineering is usually needed.

Many CPG companies have specialized teams
providing Analytics services or capabilities.
This approach allows companies to spread
these rare skills across the business so that
they enhance decision-making in existing
business processes. The downside is that it
doesn’t build a sustainable, enterprise-wide
Analytics capability.

Insight-driven Decisions
Companies will need to reengineer decisionmaking in business units and functions to
become more Analytics-driven. It will take
conscious effort, because even though 62
percent of companies we surveyed believe
that Analytics makes for “quicker/more
effective decision-making,” only 25 percent
habitually rely upon Analytics in that process.1
Companies will also have to take a hard
look at their ability and willingness to reengineer processes so that functions such as
marketing, sales and supply chain work more
collaboratively to use Analytics consistently.
CPG companies will also need to coordinate

Instead of bolting Analytics onto current
processes “as needed,” we advocate adapting
cross-functional processes, activities, roles and
responsibilities to infuse Analytics into daily
decision-making. This approach generates a
greater return on Analytics capabilities, as
well as institutionalize their use in everyday
decisions continuously and repeatedly, in
near real time. For example, every time a
category manager speaks to a customer he or

To get started with reengineering decisions,
CPG firms should consider conducting an
Analytics diagnostic to identify what insight
is needed, when and by whom, so that the
insights delivered are relevant, actionable
and timely, and the breadth of insights is
appropriate. Changes that increase the
visibility and value of Analytics are also
needed. These include consistently and
deliberately tying strategies and tactics to
insights generated from Analytics, as well
as prioritizing outcomes-based requests for
Analytics services clearly tied to meeting
important enterprise business goals. This
typically involves prioritizing Analytics
capabilities based on strategic importance
and value potential as shown in Figure 4.
Too often we find that companies launch
Analytics or “big data” efforts without a clear
view of what exactly they want to accomplish,
which results in a solution that is not tied to a
business problem. Indeed, Accenture research
found that even among companies that selfreport having good performance management
systems, only 20 percent could point to a
causal link between what they measure and
the outcomes they hope to achieve.4

with retailers to ensure that the new insights
are acted upon at the shelf. P&G, for example,
focuses on a data-driven culture and uses
innovative tools like “Business Sphere”
to make sure Analytics informs business
decisions (see sidebar).

Analytics will take root faster if tied to
business outcomes and if there is a clear
business case that quantifies the benefits
of Analytics. Consequently, companies need
to experiment with developing mechanisms
that identify, track and realize the value
of Analytics efforts. The value realization
mechanism will help move organizations
from a data-based mindset to an outcomesbased mindset and minimize needless or
unproductive requests for Analytics support.
Embedding Analytics in decision-making and
tying it to overall business outcomes also
helps break down the organizational barriers
that impede information sharing. If the
expectation is that decisions must be backed
by specific and shared insights, it will be
much harder for “data/information hoarders”
to continue such practices.
Case Study: P&G Uses Analytics to Drive a “Cultural Revolution”
P&G’s Business Sphere Analytics-based environment allows the company to harmonize data quickly,
operationalize Analytics and reinforce an Analytics mindset so that the company reacts to insights faster and
“speeds the pace of business.” Business Sphere combines an immersive, data visualization environment with
an integrated dynamic technical architecture and facilitated discussion frameworks. According to former CEO
Bob MacDonald, it is a key component of P&G’s effort to “move business intelligence from the periphery of
operations to the center of how business gets done.”2 Business Sphere has been characterized as “the opposite
of creating standard reports” and as being centered on “creating a standard environment with the right tools
(where)…experts…use whatever data they need to make the right decisions.”3

Case Study: Infusing Predictive Customer Analytics into Decision-making Processes
As one of the world’s largest retailers, Tesco has spent decades extracting insights from customer buying trends
and incorporating those insights into upstream operations. Tesco leveraged its customer loyalty card program
to extract customer purchasing insights and applied them toward the redesign of its internal operational
processes, most notably its supply chain. Through scenario planning, Tesco can deliver exactly the right type and
amount of inventory to the right store at the right time and reduce its risk of stock-outs. For example, Tesco
can accurately predict weather-driven buying behavior at unique stores and can precisely stock them based
on a weekend weather forecast. Tesco’s supply chain Analytics division has approximately 50 employees, all
skilled in engineering and statistics, and who have also been trained in retail processes and other technology
applications, enabling the team to apply advanced Analytics insights in a meaningful operational manner.
As a result, Tesco has captured more than $100M GBP in operational cost savings, in addition to revenue and
margin gains from improving its customer segmentation capabilities. Tesco is a visionary through its innovative
application of deep-dive customer insights to its supply chain, and today can quickly pilot and test new ideas
(thanks to its warehouse of data, technology tools and Analytics experts) and make quick decisions on new
cross-functional strategies.

Section II:
Organizing and
Governing Analytics
Capabilities across
the Organization

•	 Governance: Where should Analytics
talent “live” in the organization—will
Analytics talent reside in a stand-alone
organization, be embedded within the
business or some of both? How should
demand and supply be managed?

•	 Sponsorship: Who should have
accountability for the direction, funding
and governance of Analytics?

Our research shows CPG companies are at
various stages of implementing an Analytics
operating model with these components.
On a relative basis, companies outside
North America report the most progress.
Companies span the spectrum from not
having a defined Analytics operating model
to having a model that is fully designed
and implemented, with the largest segment
(26 percent) characterizing their efforts as
partially defined/partially implemented (see
Figure 5).

•	 Leadership: Who is charged with realizing
the vision for Analytics?

Sponsorship

To extract the most value from Analytics,
and to do so efficiently, cost-effectively
and continuously, companies will need to
address some basic organizational issues.
These include:

•	 Funding: How should the development
of an Analytics capability be funded?
Put another way, who has to bear the
responsibility to fund Analytics up front
and on an ongoing basis? How does
funding impact the use of Analytics?

As with most transformational programs,
having the right level and type of
sponsorship is critical. The sponsor must be
passionate and articulate enough about the
benefits of Analytics to whip up enthusiasm,
and confident and senior enough to maintain
order and balance supply and demand. An

enterprise view is also required, as the
sponsor will need to make decisions that
benefit the organization, as opposed to
separate units. A sponsor’s ultimate purpose
is to accelerate adoption and buy-in across
the organization in order to increase value
realization. Consequently, the sponsor also
needs to be a politically astute leader who
can break down cultural barriers to extract
and disseminate data more broadly.

Leadership
Analytics leaders cascade the vision of
what Analytics can do for the business,
encourage people to realize this potential
and hold people accountable for the
results. The leader’s role is to build
alignment and reinforce the Analytics
culture, advancing the Analytics capability
of the organization and improving
decision-making. Several organizations
have a new C-level role—”Chief Analytics
Officer” or “SVP Enterprise Analytics.”

Funding
Funding can come from multiple sources and
often does, generally from functions and in
proportion to the priority the function puts on
Analytics. While not a rule, we’ve seen that
the more advanced the organization is in terms
of Analytics maturity, the more prevalent is
an enterprise-wide funding and resourcing
model. Our point of view is that funding at the
enterprise level would underscore the strategic
value Analytics can generate, while preserving
the option of migrating to a pay-to-play model
for the consumption of Analytics. Initially,
a pay-to-play model enables functional
executives to opt out of integrating Analytics
insight into everyday business decisions and
actions. Having a base-level corporate charge
against functional P&Ls provides incentive
to begin to use the function. As adoption
increases, usage-based allocation of charges
and ultimately resources becomes more
appropriate. There are many different funding
models and the optimal approach is truly
dependent upon each company’s culture and
unique set of circumstances.

Case Study: Evolving the Analytics Organization at a Large Australian Bank
CPG companies looking to organize a strong Analytics capability can learn from a large national bank’s approach.
Initially the bank introduced Analytics “pods” to provide Analytics service to the business. However, without a
standard reporting structure this led to unnecessary headcount and low or uneven utilization and business knowledge
among analysts. Over time the bank transitioned to an organization that utilized a centralized, offshore Analytics
CoE that would allow it to ramp up and down Analytics services based on the demands and readiness of the business.
The bank’s well-orchestrated Analytics evolution took place in three phases over two-and-a-half years:
•	In the year-long phase one, the bank established a centralized Analytics organization to provide basic Analytics, such as
models, commentary, and basic recommendations and insights.
•	In the second phase, the new CoE spent six months providing a solid foundation of business and industry knowledge to
Analytics experts so they could generate insights aligned to business strategies and objectives, better identify consumer
or industry trends and engage in forecast optimization.
•	The final phase was given over to training the business to effectively use and apply these insights in day-to-day business
decisions and defining new processes that encouraged and rewarded use of Analytics across the enterprise as a whole.
The governance structure defines the distinct
roles and responsibilities that each group or
individual assumes as it relates to Analytics.
For instance, where do Analytics capabilities
“reside” in the organization? Is it better to be
managed centrally or within a function?
Analytics can be organized in several ways, as
shown by the six options in Figure 6. Options
range from wholly decentralized or centralized
groups to functional or Center of Excellence
(CoE) constructs. In choosing an organization
construct, CPG firms should consider how
each facilitates (or inhibits) governance over
multiple Analytics projects and also recognize
that organizations frequently evolve as
business needs change (see sidebar).
How do companies determine which
organizational option is right? There are three
primary considerations: company priorities,
maturity of Analytics capabilities and the
need to balance supply and demand for
Analytics skills. For instance, the Functional
model is often used when the organization
is relatively new to Analytics, doesn’t need
analysts in every area of operations and, in
fact, there are too few analysts to justify
centralizing. A Centralized model is often the
choice when there is a growing demand for
Analytics and a critical mass of analysts exists,
and allocation of these scarce resources is
a priority. An evolving model for Analytics
Competitors is the Federated model (also
referred to as a “hub and spoke” model) which

works well where there is a high demand for
Analytics across the organization, justifying
both a central Analytics “SWAT team” to
address complex cross-functional efforts as
well as resources in different areas of the
business to execute more functionally focused
Analytics. This model also enables greater
efficiencies as both basic and more advanced
Analytics become repetitive in nature (i.e.,
requiring regularly scheduled refreshes)
and can be integrated into a “factory”
environment either within a hub or a spoke
location using more cost-effective resources.
In our experience, CPG companies are
gravitating toward a CoE or Federated model
because of several advantages such as
flexibility to allocate capabilities to maximize
their effectiveness, easier governance
and increased resource engagement. The
Federated model can ensure adequate
coverage of both enterprise activities (data
virtualization or enterprise dashboard design,
for example) as well as function-specific
Analytics with predictive and prescriptive
modeling. Governance is streamlined
because duplication is reduced and KPIs are
established for the central and dispersed
teams. Finally, Analytics resources have the
benefit of both a centralized organizational
unit to provide capability development
opportunities as well as the ability to
specialize in different areas of the business to
deepen institutional knowledge and ties.

9

Another critical aspect of governance is the
ability to define an appropriate process to
manage the supply and demand for Analytics
capabilities. It usually doesn’t take long
before there is an overwhelming “pull” for
Analytics from the organization, making
the process to qualify, solution and service
demand critical.
Demand typically comes from two
sources: (1) Stakeholder initiated, where
points of contact within the business
unit identify and qualify opportunities,
and (2) Proactive identification, whereby
the Analytics organization identifies
opportunities based on diagnostics or
awareness sessions with stakeholders.
Once opportunities have defined business
cases and pass an initial set of screening
criteria, they can be consolidated and
reviewed periodically by a centralized
Analytics organization and/or Steering
Committee. This body prioritizes
opportunities based on a defined set of
criteria (strategic, financial, capacity, etc.)
and determines the appropriate approach
and team to service the opportunity.
Effective management of demand not only
helps to identify, prioritize and service the
highest value opportunities, it helps in
downstream planning for talent acquisition,
capability development and planning for
other investments.
In CPG, there is clearly an opportunity to use
deeper, more comprehensive Analytics to improve
performance by addressing different issues,
including:
•	 Getting closer to the consumer: Intense competition for consumer
loyalty means that CPG companies need the ability to draw deeper
consumer insights from “big data” and make quicker, fact-based
decisions.
•	 Optimizing the supply chain: Increasing pressure to reduce costs
while simultaneously increasing service levels is also driving a need for
improved decision making throughout the supply chain.
•	 Strengthening relationships with the retailer: Retailers have direct
access to the shopper, have a wealth of information at their disposal,
continue to mature their Analytics capabilities and are now expecting
this level of sophistication from their suppliers.
•	 Better managing talent: How to hire, manage and deploy the right 	
talent across the business to meet global marketplace needs.

Section III:
Sourcing and
Deploying
Analytics Talent

surveyed are in the market for Analytics
talent, finding that talent remains difficult. A
full 20 percent of respondents had pressing
needs for statistical modelers, econometric
experts and decision scientists that they could
not fill. Additionally, one in four companies
senses some constraints in its ability to fill
roles associated with the delivery of Analytics
insights such as business intelligence or
visualization specialists (Figure 7).

It was hardly surprising when the Harvard
Business Review named “Data Scientist” the
sexiest job of the century5—barely a decade
into the century—underscoring the dearth
of Analytics talent. Research by Accenture’s
Institute of High Performance found that
only one out of 10 qualified university
graduates accepts industry-based Analytics
positions and, out of these, most head
toward investment banking, consulting or
software firms.6

Talent Needs in CPG
Not any Analytics talent will do in CPG.
Companies need analysts that have advanced
Analytics skills and familiarity with the
complexity of CPG distribution networks and
the volume of structured and unstructured
data. While many CPG companies tend
to have talent in the area of descriptive
Analytics, companies need analysts capable
of generating predictive and prescriptive
insights as well. Our experience is that most
formal Analytics organizations require several
analysts of various tenures across roles and
skill levels as shown in Figure 8.

The shortage could crimp many CPG firms’
ability to become an Analytics-driven
company in the near future. Our current
research of CPG leaders showed that while
nearly three-quarters of CPG companies

CPG companies need
analysts that have
advanced Analytics skills
and familiarity with
the complexity of CPG
distribution networks and
the volume of structured
and unstructured data.

to develop or retain data scientists are also
leading to some interesting collaborations.
•	 New York City is contributing $15
million to Columbia University’s Institute
for Data Sciences and Engineering, a
certificate program to be led by a staff
of 75 professors. NYU is also launching a
graduate program. The vision is to have
New York become a mecca for Analytics,
and not just on Wall Street.
•	 Companies in Seattle are taking a more
direct, aggressive approach. Microsoft,
Google and Amazon are all supporting

Analytics-related programs at the University
of Washington.8 Of course, the companies
would be among the future employers and
beneficiaries of program graduates as well,
making their investment a win/win.
CPG companies can also look to alternative
arrangements to source the appropriate skills.
A third-party provider could be retained to
address a specific Analytics problem or project.
Another alternative is to secure a dedicated
“capacity” of Analytics talent from a thirdparty provider in an onshore, offshore or hybrid
model for a set period of time. This approach
has several advantages for CPG companies,
including the ability to dynamically reorient
toward value, flexibility of talent and capacity,
and lower cost compared to hiring internally or
through a project.

Case Study: How Google Wins the War for Analytics Talent
Google is a visionary in the field of Analytics capabilities and continues to set the bar for the most advanced and
creative approaches to recruiting and cultivating leading-edge Analytics talent. For example, the company follows
a “70-20-10 rule”10—where employees spend 70 percent of their time on their standard role, one day per week on
projects that will develop their technical skills and benefit the company, and half a day per week exploring product
and business innovations and ideas. This sort of on-the-job training (vs. classroom training) is critical for the
engagement and development of employees. Google’s approach not only develops in-house Analytics talent, but it
also allows the company to attract, select and hire only “the best” Analytics talent available.

this includes executive-level skills. There is
an evolving set of managerial “literacies”
essential to competing on Analytics, including
the ability to find, manipulate, manage
and interpret all kinds of data. In addition
to these technical skills, managers at all
levels should be willing and able to apply
the principles of scientific experimentation
to business and have an appreciation for
quantitative methods. Some organizations are
conducting an annual “Analytics Academy” to
build Analytics competence and literacy. For

example, P&G created “a baseline digitalskills inventory that’s tailored to every level of
advancement in the organization.”9

Talent Management
The care and feeding of Analytics talent may
require new approaches beyond the standard
career progression and incentives. For instance,
given their love of data, many analysts don’t
aspire to typical management or organizational
leadership roles, so CPG companies need to

work harder to develop career paths so that
they can retain Analytics talent long enough
to close the skills gap. And when it comes
to Analytics talent it is a seller’s market. Our
survey indicates that two-thirds of respondents
view Analytics talent retention as their biggest
challenge (Figure 9) and that the difficulty of
attracting and retaining Analytics talent has
been felt for several years. Companies might
want to take a page from Google, a clear
innovator in forging ways to keep its talent
happy (see sidebar).

Summary:
Journey To ROI

toward an Analytics capability that is grounded
in business value creation, and in knowing
that much of the value will depend upon realigning roles and decision-making processes.

How long does it take to become an
Analytics-driven CPG company, and does
the journey ever end? There is not a “typical”
Analytics journey that companies make but
there are common guideposts along the way
(Figure 10). Companies may use a major
business transformation or clear pain points
as the burning platform needed to jumpstart
their Analytics journey. Some CPG companies
may already have a high sense of urgency
within top management, or an executive
sponsor who is passionate about the company
moving toward a more fact-based orientation
and culture. Given that there are often
“pockets” of Analytics capability to build
on, the leap is oftentimes from “craft” to an
“industrialized” approach.

CPG companies that use an enterprise-wide
Analytics operating model have been able to
build a data- and insights-driven culture, make
better decisions faster and improve business
outcomes. Companies that have moved from
investing in Analytics to capturing Analytics
ROI have done so by establishing a strong
backbone of Analytics across the organization.
This includes innovating, piloting and
industrializing Analytics solutions with the help
of a network of skilled talent and capabilities;
scaling Analytics capabilities using various
models; and effectively supporting business
initiatives that clearly generate revenue,
optimize costs and mitigate risks.

Figure 10 illustrates a two- to three-year
migration toward becoming an Analytics
Competitor, that begins with the design of
the operating model discussed in this paper.
The exact path and duration of the journey
to Analytics ROI can also vary based on value
creation potential, cultural fit and level of
Analytics maturity. At whatever stage a CPG
firm begins its journey, the key is to progress

To implement an issues-to-outcome
approach to Analytics and achieve desired
business outcomes, CPG companies need an
Analytics operating model that meets three
core requirements:
1. Infusing Analytics into the Decisionmaking Process
2. Organizing and Governing Analytics
Capabilities across the Organization

At whatever stage a CPG
firm begins its journey, the
key is to progress toward an
Analytics capability that is
grounded in business value
creation, knowing that much
of the value will depend
upon realigning roles and
decision-making processes.

Competing on Analytics and building an
enterprise Analytics capability is no easy
task, but within the CPG industry, it is
quickly becoming a necessity. Those who
are moving beyond understanding what
happened and why, and beginning to predict
the outcomes of various decisions and
outcomes are gaining competitive advantage
by reducing costs, increasing speed to
market and driving profitability.

CPG Companies: Evolving Your Analytics-driven Organizations

  • 1. Building an Analytics-Driven Organization Organizing, Governing, Sourcing and Growing Analytics Capabilities in CPG
  • 2. Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies realize that Analytics is a required capability to compete effectively in today’s marketplace. Yet, few have succeeded in capturing the business value they wanted or expected from their Analytics investments. Our recent research with CPG executives revealed that while companies have pockets of localized Analytics capability, fewer than half have ingrained Analytics or believe it to be a differentiating capability within their organization. What’s more, companies continue to struggle with fundamental issues related to Analytics spanning data, methods, organization and technology (Figure 1). And, Analytics capabilities are deployed frequently to generate hindsight—“rearview” descriptions of what happened—rather than forward-looking insights that can be used to make operational, managerial and strategic decisions. Figure 2: Title Placeholder Please rank*CPG Firms Contend with Several Analytics Challenges Figure 1: order your organizations most significant challenges related to analytics: 69% Data: Quality 67% Data Data: Timeliness for decision making 57% Data: Integration Data: Availability 53% Methods Methods: Metrics & KPis functionally siloed and do not provide necessary insight 50% Methods: Focus is more on gathering/manipulation than insight generation 49% Technology Organization Methods: Reactive processes and do not help with root cuase analysis 34% Organization: Lack the right talent or an appropriate amount of talent 30% Organization: Investments in analytics are not sufficient 28% Organication: Lack of sponsorship 22% Technology: Lack an appropriate toolset Technology: Lack of training or ability to effectively leverage existing toolset 27% 14% *Ranked within top five choices Source: Accenture 2013 Research Study *Ranked within top five choices 2
  • 3. We believe these challenges can be addressed if companies take the time to develop an enterprise-wide Analytics strategy and underpin it with an operating model designed to harness the power of Analytics. Taking this type of issue-to-outcome approach is critical because it puts the focus where it should be: on tying Analytics directly to making decisions, taking action and delivering value for improved business performance (Figure 2). To achieve these business outcomes, an Analytics operating model needs to meet three core requirements. 1. Infusing Analytics into the Decision-making Process. 3. Sourcing and Deploying Analytics Talent. To embed an “Analytics first” philosophy into the business, CPG leaders are well served by starting with the business issue first, then defining the most relevant data and analysis and then reengineering decisions to use the resulting analysis and insights. Analytics talent is hard to come by, and analysts who have industry-specific experience are even harder to find. CPG companies need to revise talent management processes to reflect this reality in the sourcing, development and recognition of Analytics talent. 2. Organizing and Governing Analytics Capabilities across the Organization. Specifically designing the most appropriate Analytics organization construct and allocation of resources based on the maturity and needs of the business, where Analytics insight will deliver the most value and the closest positioning to decision-making. A critical element of this is the ability to effectively manage supply and demand for Analytics services across the business. While there is no one “right” operating model that works for every company, there are seven components that should be addressed to shape the appropriate operating model: • Sponsorship & Governance • Organization Structure & Talent Management • Data to Insights • Capability Development • Insight-driven Decisions • Outcome Measurement • Information & Data Management Figure 4: Enterprise Analytics Operating Model Components Figure 2: Accenture Analytics Operating Model Components “Insights to Outcomes” Data to Insights The roles and processes required to analyze data and uncover insights Capability Development The industrialization of individual Analytics capabilities to move up the Analytics maturity scale 3 Insight-Driven Decisions Organization Structure & Talent Mgmt. The people, their skills and the organizational structure needed to support Analytics transformation Outcome Measurement Sponsorship & Governance The process to obtain executive sponsorship, financial support and senior leadership commitment to the Analytics vision The processes to assess the value of Analytics insights as well as track the benefits realized over time “Information to Insights” Process to deliver insights for consumption by the business to make smarter decisions Information & Data Mgmt. The rules and processes to identify and prioritize the specific data elements from internal and external sources to be extracted, integrated, processed and managed “Data to Information”

  • 5. Section I: Infusing Analytics into the Decisionmaking Process she has the opportunity to leverage Analytics insights to improve assortment, price and promotion effectiveness. Changes for improved performance require fact-based discussion, decisions and actions across brand marketing, sales planning, field sales, supply chain and of course the retailer. To ensure that differentiated Analytics-driven insight can be acted upon at speed, end-to-end process assessment and reengineering is usually needed. Many CPG companies have specialized teams providing Analytics services or capabilities. This approach allows companies to spread these rare skills across the business so that they enhance decision-making in existing business processes. The downside is that it doesn’t build a sustainable, enterprise-wide Analytics capability. Insight-driven Decisions Companies will need to reengineer decisionmaking in business units and functions to become more Analytics-driven. It will take conscious effort, because even though 62 percent of companies we surveyed believe that Analytics makes for “quicker/more effective decision-making,” only 25 percent habitually rely upon Analytics in that process.1 Companies will also have to take a hard look at their ability and willingness to reengineer processes so that functions such as marketing, sales and supply chain work more collaboratively to use Analytics consistently. CPG companies will also need to coordinate Instead of bolting Analytics onto current processes “as needed,” we advocate adapting cross-functional processes, activities, roles and responsibilities to infuse Analytics into daily decision-making. This approach generates a greater return on Analytics capabilities, as well as institutionalize their use in everyday decisions continuously and repeatedly, in near real time. For example, every time a category manager speaks to a customer he or Figure 5: Prioritizing CPG Analytics Figure 4: Prioritizing CPG Analytics Capabilities High 4.2 4.2 4.6 4.6 4.4 4.4 3.1 3.1 Strategic Importance 2.4 2.4 3.4 3.4 2.3 2.3 4.3 4.3 2.1 2.1 4.1 2.2 5.4 5.4 1.6 1.6 3.5 1.5 1.5 1.10 1.1 1.7 4.5 1.7 4.5 2.6 2.6 1.1 1.1 1.2 1.2 1.9 1.9 2.5 2.5 4.7 4.7 1.4 1.4 3.6 3.6 3.8 3.8 2.7 2.7 1.8 4.8 1.8 4.8 5.15.2 5.2 5.3 Low Low Capability Value Potential High Represents analytic capabilities (e.g., assortment optimization) 5 To get started with reengineering decisions, CPG firms should consider conducting an Analytics diagnostic to identify what insight is needed, when and by whom, so that the insights delivered are relevant, actionable and timely, and the breadth of insights is appropriate. Changes that increase the visibility and value of Analytics are also needed. These include consistently and deliberately tying strategies and tactics to insights generated from Analytics, as well as prioritizing outcomes-based requests for Analytics services clearly tied to meeting important enterprise business goals. This typically involves prioritizing Analytics capabilities based on strategic importance and value potential as shown in Figure 4. Too often we find that companies launch Analytics or “big data” efforts without a clear view of what exactly they want to accomplish, which results in a solution that is not tied to a business problem. Indeed, Accenture research found that even among companies that selfreport having good performance management systems, only 20 percent could point to a causal link between what they measure and the outcomes they hope to achieve.4 Value Realization 3.3 3.9 3.3 3.9 3.7 3.7 3.2 3.2 1.3 1.3 with retailers to ensure that the new insights are acted upon at the shelf. P&G, for example, focuses on a data-driven culture and uses innovative tools like “Business Sphere” to make sure Analytics informs business decisions (see sidebar). Analytics will take root faster if tied to business outcomes and if there is a clear business case that quantifies the benefits of Analytics. Consequently, companies need to experiment with developing mechanisms that identify, track and realize the value of Analytics efforts. The value realization mechanism will help move organizations from a data-based mindset to an outcomesbased mindset and minimize needless or unproductive requests for Analytics support. Embedding Analytics in decision-making and tying it to overall business outcomes also helps break down the organizational barriers that impede information sharing. If the expectation is that decisions must be backed by specific and shared insights, it will be much harder for “data/information hoarders” to continue such practices.
  • 6. Case Study: P&G Uses Analytics to Drive a “Cultural Revolution” P&G’s Business Sphere Analytics-based environment allows the company to harmonize data quickly, operationalize Analytics and reinforce an Analytics mindset so that the company reacts to insights faster and “speeds the pace of business.” Business Sphere combines an immersive, data visualization environment with an integrated dynamic technical architecture and facilitated discussion frameworks. According to former CEO Bob MacDonald, it is a key component of P&G’s effort to “move business intelligence from the periphery of operations to the center of how business gets done.”2 Business Sphere has been characterized as “the opposite of creating standard reports” and as being centered on “creating a standard environment with the right tools (where)…experts…use whatever data they need to make the right decisions.”3 Case Study: Infusing Predictive Customer Analytics into Decision-making Processes As one of the world’s largest retailers, Tesco has spent decades extracting insights from customer buying trends and incorporating those insights into upstream operations. Tesco leveraged its customer loyalty card program to extract customer purchasing insights and applied them toward the redesign of its internal operational processes, most notably its supply chain. Through scenario planning, Tesco can deliver exactly the right type and amount of inventory to the right store at the right time and reduce its risk of stock-outs. For example, Tesco can accurately predict weather-driven buying behavior at unique stores and can precisely stock them based on a weekend weather forecast. Tesco’s supply chain Analytics division has approximately 50 employees, all skilled in engineering and statistics, and who have also been trained in retail processes and other technology applications, enabling the team to apply advanced Analytics insights in a meaningful operational manner. As a result, Tesco has captured more than $100M GBP in operational cost savings, in addition to revenue and margin gains from improving its customer segmentation capabilities. Tesco is a visionary through its innovative application of deep-dive customer insights to its supply chain, and today can quickly pilot and test new ideas (thanks to its warehouse of data, technology tools and Analytics experts) and make quick decisions on new cross-functional strategies. 1 Analytics in Action: Breakthroughs and Barriers on the Journey to ROI.

  • 7. Section II: Organizing and Governing Analytics Capabilities across the Organization • Governance: Where should Analytics talent “live” in the organization—will Analytics talent reside in a stand-alone organization, be embedded within the business or some of both? How should demand and supply be managed? • Sponsorship: Who should have accountability for the direction, funding and governance of Analytics? Our research shows CPG companies are at various stages of implementing an Analytics operating model with these components. On a relative basis, companies outside North America report the most progress. Companies span the spectrum from not having a defined Analytics operating model to having a model that is fully designed and implemented, with the largest segment (26 percent) characterizing their efforts as partially defined/partially implemented (see Figure 5). • Leadership: Who is charged with realizing the vision for Analytics? Sponsorship To extract the most value from Analytics, and to do so efficiently, cost-effectively and continuously, companies will need to address some basic organizational issues. These include: • Funding: How should the development of an Analytics capability be funded? Put another way, who has to bear the responsibility to fund Analytics up front and on an ongoing basis? How does funding impact the use of Analytics? As with most transformational programs, having the right level and type of sponsorship is critical. The sponsor must be passionate and articulate enough about the benefits of Analytics to whip up enthusiasm, and confident and senior enough to maintain order and balance supply and demand. An Figure 5: Companies Vary in Implementing Analytics Operating Model Fully implemented 9% Fully defined: implemented across certain geographies only 15% Fully defined: implemented across certain functions only Fully defined: not implemented Fully defined: partially implemented (e.g., piloting in a region) 17% 13% 26% enterprise view is also required, as the sponsor will need to make decisions that benefit the organization, as opposed to separate units. A sponsor’s ultimate purpose is to accelerate adoption and buy-in across the organization in order to increase value realization. Consequently, the sponsor also needs to be a politically astute leader who can break down cultural barriers to extract and disseminate data more broadly. Leadership Analytics leaders cascade the vision of what Analytics can do for the business, encourage people to realize this potential and hold people accountable for the results. The leader’s role is to build alignment and reinforce the Analytics culture, advancing the Analytics capability of the organization and improving decision-making. Several organizations have a new C-level role—”Chief Analytics Officer” or “SVP Enterprise Analytics.” Funding Funding can come from multiple sources and often does, generally from functions and in proportion to the priority the function puts on Analytics. While not a rule, we’ve seen that the more advanced the organization is in terms of Analytics maturity, the more prevalent is an enterprise-wide funding and resourcing model. Our point of view is that funding at the enterprise level would underscore the strategic value Analytics can generate, while preserving the option of migrating to a pay-to-play model for the consumption of Analytics. Initially, a pay-to-play model enables functional executives to opt out of integrating Analytics insight into everyday business decisions and actions. Having a base-level corporate charge against functional P&Ls provides incentive to begin to use the function. As adoption increases, usage-based allocation of charges and ultimately resources becomes more appropriate. There are many different funding models and the optimal approach is truly dependent upon each company’s culture and unique set of circumstances.

  • 9. Case Study: Evolving the Analytics Organization at a Large Australian Bank CPG companies looking to organize a strong Analytics capability can learn from a large national bank’s approach. Initially the bank introduced Analytics “pods” to provide Analytics service to the business. However, without a standard reporting structure this led to unnecessary headcount and low or uneven utilization and business knowledge among analysts. Over time the bank transitioned to an organization that utilized a centralized, offshore Analytics CoE that would allow it to ramp up and down Analytics services based on the demands and readiness of the business. The bank’s well-orchestrated Analytics evolution took place in three phases over two-and-a-half years: • In the year-long phase one, the bank established a centralized Analytics organization to provide basic Analytics, such as models, commentary, and basic recommendations and insights. • In the second phase, the new CoE spent six months providing a solid foundation of business and industry knowledge to Analytics experts so they could generate insights aligned to business strategies and objectives, better identify consumer or industry trends and engage in forecast optimization. • The final phase was given over to training the business to effectively use and apply these insights in day-to-day business decisions and defining new processes that encouraged and rewarded use of Analytics across the enterprise as a whole. The governance structure defines the distinct roles and responsibilities that each group or individual assumes as it relates to Analytics. For instance, where do Analytics capabilities “reside” in the organization? Is it better to be managed centrally or within a function? Analytics can be organized in several ways, as shown by the six options in Figure 6. Options range from wholly decentralized or centralized groups to functional or Center of Excellence (CoE) constructs. In choosing an organization construct, CPG firms should consider how each facilitates (or inhibits) governance over multiple Analytics projects and also recognize that organizations frequently evolve as business needs change (see sidebar). How do companies determine which organizational option is right? There are three primary considerations: company priorities, maturity of Analytics capabilities and the need to balance supply and demand for Analytics skills. For instance, the Functional model is often used when the organization is relatively new to Analytics, doesn’t need analysts in every area of operations and, in fact, there are too few analysts to justify centralizing. A Centralized model is often the choice when there is a growing demand for Analytics and a critical mass of analysts exists, and allocation of these scarce resources is a priority. An evolving model for Analytics Competitors is the Federated model (also referred to as a “hub and spoke” model) which works well where there is a high demand for Analytics across the organization, justifying both a central Analytics “SWAT team” to address complex cross-functional efforts as well as resources in different areas of the business to execute more functionally focused Analytics. This model also enables greater efficiencies as both basic and more advanced Analytics become repetitive in nature (i.e., requiring regularly scheduled refreshes) and can be integrated into a “factory” environment either within a hub or a spoke location using more cost-effective resources. In our experience, CPG companies are gravitating toward a CoE or Federated model because of several advantages such as flexibility to allocate capabilities to maximize their effectiveness, easier governance and increased resource engagement. The Federated model can ensure adequate coverage of both enterprise activities (data virtualization or enterprise dashboard design, for example) as well as function-specific Analytics with predictive and prescriptive modeling. Governance is streamlined because duplication is reduced and KPIs are established for the central and dispersed teams. Finally, Analytics resources have the benefit of both a centralized organizational unit to provide capability development opportunities as well as the ability to specialize in different areas of the business to deepen institutional knowledge and ties. 9 Another critical aspect of governance is the ability to define an appropriate process to manage the supply and demand for Analytics capabilities. It usually doesn’t take long before there is an overwhelming “pull” for Analytics from the organization, making the process to qualify, solution and service demand critical. Demand typically comes from two sources: (1) Stakeholder initiated, where points of contact within the business unit identify and qualify opportunities, and (2) Proactive identification, whereby the Analytics organization identifies opportunities based on diagnostics or awareness sessions with stakeholders. Once opportunities have defined business cases and pass an initial set of screening criteria, they can be consolidated and reviewed periodically by a centralized Analytics organization and/or Steering Committee. This body prioritizes opportunities based on a defined set of criteria (strategic, financial, capacity, etc.) and determines the appropriate approach and team to service the opportunity. Effective management of demand not only helps to identify, prioritize and service the highest value opportunities, it helps in downstream planning for talent acquisition, capability development and planning for other investments.
  • 10. In CPG, there is clearly an opportunity to use deeper, more comprehensive Analytics to improve performance by addressing different issues, including: • Getting closer to the consumer: Intense competition for consumer loyalty means that CPG companies need the ability to draw deeper consumer insights from “big data” and make quicker, fact-based decisions. • Optimizing the supply chain: Increasing pressure to reduce costs while simultaneously increasing service levels is also driving a need for improved decision making throughout the supply chain. • Strengthening relationships with the retailer: Retailers have direct access to the shopper, have a wealth of information at their disposal, continue to mature their Analytics capabilities and are now expecting this level of sophistication from their suppliers. • Better managing talent: How to hire, manage and deploy the right talent across the business to meet global marketplace needs. 10
  • 11. Section III: Sourcing and Deploying Analytics Talent surveyed are in the market for Analytics talent, finding that talent remains difficult. A full 20 percent of respondents had pressing needs for statistical modelers, econometric experts and decision scientists that they could not fill. Additionally, one in four companies senses some constraints in its ability to fill roles associated with the delivery of Analytics insights such as business intelligence or visualization specialists (Figure 7). It was hardly surprising when the Harvard Business Review named “Data Scientist” the sexiest job of the century5—barely a decade into the century—underscoring the dearth of Analytics talent. Research by Accenture’s Institute of High Performance found that only one out of 10 qualified university graduates accepts industry-based Analytics positions and, out of these, most head toward investment banking, consulting or software firms.6 Talent Needs in CPG Not any Analytics talent will do in CPG. Companies need analysts that have advanced Analytics skills and familiarity with the complexity of CPG distribution networks and the volume of structured and unstructured data. While many CPG companies tend to have talent in the area of descriptive Analytics, companies need analysts capable of generating predictive and prescriptive insights as well. Our experience is that most formal Analytics organizations require several analysts of various tenures across roles and skill levels as shown in Figure 8. The shortage could crimp many CPG firms’ ability to become an Analytics-driven company in the near future. Our current research of CPG leaders showed that while nearly three-quarters of CPG companies CPG companies need analysts that have advanced Analytics skills and familiarity with the complexity of CPG distribution networks and the volume of structured and unstructured data. 5 Davenport, T., and Patil, D.

Universities ranging from MIT to George Mason are investing in data science degree executive-level skills. programs, some with industry specializations such as health care, to train the data scientists of tomorrow. Public-private partnerships to develop or retain data scientists are also leading to some interesting collaborations. • New York City is contributing $15 million to Columbia University’s Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering, a certificate program to be led by a staff of 75 professors. NYU is also launching a graduate program. The vision is to have New York become a mecca for Analytics, and not just on Wall Street. • Companies in Seattle are taking a more direct, aggressive approach. Microsoft, Google and Amazon are all supporting Analytics-related programs at the University of Washington.8 Of course, the companies would be among the future employers and beneficiaries of program graduates as well, making their investment a win/win. CPG companies can also look to alternative arrangements to source the appropriate skills. A third-party provider could be retained to address a specific Analytics problem or project. Another alternative is to secure a dedicated “capacity” of Analytics talent from a thirdparty provider in an onshore, offshore or hybrid model for a set period of time. This approach has several advantages for CPG companies, including the ability to dynamically reorient toward value, flexibility of talent and capacity, and lower cost compared to hiring internally or through a project.

  • 13. Case Study: How Google Wins the War for Analytics Talent Google is a visionary in the field of Analytics capabilities and continues to set the bar for the most advanced and creative approaches to recruiting and cultivating leading-edge Analytics talent. For example, the company follows a “70-20-10 rule”10—where employees spend 70 percent of their time on their standard role, one day per week on projects that will develop their technical skills and benefit the company, and half a day per week exploring product and business innovations and ideas. This sort of on-the-job training (vs. classroom training) is critical for the engagement and development of employees. Google’s approach not only develops in-house Analytics talent, but it also allows the company to attract, select and hire only “the best” Analytics talent available. this includes executive-level skills. There is an evolving set of managerial “literacies” essential to competing on Analytics, including the ability to find, manipulate, manage and interpret all kinds of data. In addition to these technical skills, managers at all levels should be willing and able to apply the principles of scientific experimentation to business and have an appreciation for quantitative methods. Some organizations are conducting an annual “Analytics Academy” to build Analytics competence and literacy. For example, P&G created “a baseline digitalskills inventory that’s tailored to every level of advancement in the organization.”9 Talent Management The care and feeding of Analytics talent may require new approaches beyond the standard career progression and incentives. For instance, given their love of data, many analysts don’t aspire to typical management or organizational leadership roles, so CPG companies need to work harder to develop career paths so that they can retain Analytics talent long enough to close the skills gap. And when it comes to Analytics talent it is a seller’s market. Our survey indicates that two-thirds of respondents view Analytics talent retention as their biggest challenge (Figure 9) and that the difficulty of attracting and retaining Analytics talent has been felt for several years. Companies might want to take a page from Google, a clear innovator in forging ways to keep its talent happy (see sidebar). 9 Harris, J. Data Is Useless Without the Skills to Analyze It.

  • 14. Summary: Journey To ROI toward an Analytics capability that is grounded in business value creation, and in knowing that much of the value will depend upon realigning roles and decision-making processes. How long does it take to become an Analytics-driven CPG company, and does the journey ever end? There is not a “typical” Analytics journey that companies make but there are common guideposts along the way (Figure 10). Companies may use a major business transformation or clear pain points as the burning platform needed to jumpstart their Analytics journey. Some CPG companies may already have a high sense of urgency within top management, or an executive sponsor who is passionate about the company moving toward a more fact-based orientation and culture. Given that there are often “pockets” of Analytics capability to build on, the leap is oftentimes from “craft” to an “industrialized” approach. CPG companies that use an enterprise-wide Analytics operating model have been able to build a data- and insights-driven culture, make better decisions faster and improve business outcomes. Companies that have moved from investing in Analytics to capturing Analytics ROI have done so by establishing a strong backbone of Analytics across the organization. This includes innovating, piloting and industrializing Analytics solutions with the help of a network of skilled talent and capabilities; scaling Analytics capabilities using various models; and effectively supporting business initiatives that clearly generate revenue, optimize costs and mitigate risks. Figure 10 illustrates a two- to three-year migration toward becoming an Analytics Competitor, that begins with the design of the operating model discussed in this paper. The exact path and duration of the journey to Analytics ROI can also vary based on value creation potential, cultural fit and level of Analytics maturity. At whatever stage a CPG firm begins its journey, the key is to progress To implement an issues-to-outcome approach to Analytics and achieve desired business outcomes, CPG companies need an Analytics operating model that meets three core requirements: 1. Infusing Analytics into the Decisionmaking Process 2. Organizing and Governing Analytics Capabilities across the Organization At whatever stage a CPG firm begins its journey, the key is to progress toward an Analytics capability that is grounded in business value creation, knowing that much of the value will depend upon realigning roles and decision-making processes. Competing on Analytics and building an enterprise Analytics capability is no easy task, but within the CPG industry, it is quickly becoming a necessity. Those who are moving beyond understanding what happened and why, and beginning to predict the outcomes of various decisions and outcomes are gaining competitive advantage by reducing costs, increasing speed to market and driving profitability. 3.
