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.

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.
