Enable Your Data Literacy
The new core competency of the Digital Society
The pervasive nature of data and information and it’s increasingly understood value in our businesses, make it crucial for all employees to learn to “speak data”.
Poor data literacy is the second highest internal roadblock to successful change programmes. A sustained data literacy programme can remove that barrier.
Map Your Community of Users
LINQ provides the tools to quickly build the model of where your data and information comes from and who touches it within your organisation.
Understand who your data creators are, and how data users add or detract value from your content as they work to support your business needs.
Create a Common Language
Now you know what you have and where it comes from, you can build the base vocabulary for your data and information assets, and the dialects within specific data communities.
Conversations across the business about change and transformation will begin to benefit from the inclusion of data and information within that narrative.

Identify the Business Value of a Data-Driven Approach
LINQs value methodology simplifies access to understanding the value of your data and information assets. By identifying the value of the assets you rely on, the value of your people, processes, technology and information delivering those assets can be seen.
As your data literacy increases, more comprehensive value methodologies such as Business Value of Information (BVI) and Intrinsic Value of Information (IVI) can be applied into LINQ value model.
