There is little value in enabling access to data and reporting if the organization is not going to act and change behavior based on the insight therein. Putting in place the structure to align people, process, and technology is a considerable challenge but is vital to staying ahead in the modern business environment. Failure to make this shift leads to falling behind competitors, poor internal customer service, and lack of return on data investments.

This course details all the aspects required to establish an internal reporting center of excellence—from the intake process and setting up the appropriate structures to training, templates, and best practices for reporting and adoption. It covers the aspects of people, process, and technology that are required for success. Focus is placed on change management and utilizing real-world processes to achieve lasting cultural change. In addition, the technological pillars that support the people and process changes create a foundation that will be mapped out.
