Achieve and Retain Leadership Support
On a bright and sunny morning, Nancy Bauer had a clear sense that her new job was going to change the world. She was hired to orchestrate agile and lean transformation for a well-established, almost-150-year-old company that owned an unprecedented data set paired with powerful analytics and a well-packaged set of products and services in its domain of business information. The company recently recruited strong leadership who exhibited transformation thinking and new mentality, and believed in the power of enterprise-level lean agility. For the purpose of this story, I will refer to this enterprise as a Big Data Company, or simply BDC.
