Why don't Data Strategy exercises meet their goals and how could Design Thinking help here?
So, what is data strategy?
A data strategy is a commonly agreed (business and IT) plan for the short- and long-term utilization of data derived from an organization's business and service strategy and objectives. Its purpose is to help an organization to achieve its long-term goals by emphasizing the special nature of data and knowledge as the common and strategic capital of the organization.
Having said that, the first mistake is to give IT department and CIO the task and mandate to develop an organization's data strategy.
