From its inception in 2006, Thermo Fisher Scientific was a powerhouse, encompassing Fisher Scientific which was founded over a century ago in 1902, and Thermo Electric co-founded in 1956. Even though the company's revenue has been rising for a decade, they recognize that to stay on top of the industry they need to embrace and implement data science applications and analytics throughout their 70,000 employee company. The CSUSM MBA program and our team were engaged to identify some of the best practices and industry leaders, to help Thermo Fisher in their journey to become a more data-driven organization. We also concentrated on analyzing successful data science integrations in other companies with the goal of drawing from these companies' experiences and challenges to make a successful transition and embedding Data Science in their culture. The team interviewed fourteen Thermo Fisher Biosciences Division stakeholders, two Subject Matter Experts at California State University San Marcos, and three company leaders. Our results found that the most significant issues across Thermo Fisher regarding data analytics and their current state include the number of systems in use to share data cross-functionally. This lack of standardization was evident in our analysis. The way data is communicated to stakeholders varied as well as some inconsistencies. In addition to hearing some of the pain points in the current process, most of the interviewees have a positive outlook in the companies efforts to be a more data-driven organization. The stakeholders have seen recent changes and process improvements in different areas of the division and are aware of the capabilities that data science can bring to their organization. Given the access we had, the stakeholders we were able to interview, and our research on data science, we compiled five general recommendations for Thermo Fisher's Biosciences Division. These recommendations focus on addressing the needs in structure, resources, and alignment given the division's current state. Overall, our recommendations are intended to assist Thermo Fisher in becoming a more data-driven organization and integrate data science across multiple functions and departments in their organization. Recommendations include: continuing to start small and creating a timeline to guide stakeholder and monitor strategy as well as having a single strategy implementation plan focused on customer data to increase revenue sales. Another recommendation is that Thermo Fisher improves communication between their divisions and add training tools and modules so that every member in every division knows what actions need to be taken. Lastly, we recommend that the stakeholders' take initiative in becoming more knowledgeable in data science in general such as attending conferences, being flexible in change, and always inquiring to learn more.

Data is changing the nature of competition. Making sense of it is tough. Taking advantage of it is tougher. There is a business opportunity for organizations to use data and analytics to transform business performance. Organizations are by their nature complex. They are a constantly evolving system made up of objectives, processes designed to meet those objectives, people with skills and behaviours to do the work required, and all of this organised in a governance structure. It is dynamic, fluid and constantly moving over time. Using data and analytics you can connect all the elements of the system to design an environment for people to perform; an organization which has the right people, in the right place, doing the right things, at the right time. Only when everyone performs to their potential, do organizations have a hope of getting and sustaining a competitive edge. Data-driven Organization Design provides a practical framework for HR and Organization design practitioners to build a baseline of data, set objectives, carry out fixed and dynamic process design, map competencies, and right-size the organization. It shows how to collect the right data, present it meaningfully and ask the right questions of it. Whether looking to implement a long term transformation, large redesign, or a one-off small scale project, this book will show you how to make the most of your organizational data and analytics to drive business performance.

This IBM RedguideTM publication looks back on the key decisions that made the data lake successful and looks forward to the future. It proposes that the metadata management and governance approaches developed for the data lake can be adopted more broadly to increase the value that an organization gets from its data. Delivering this broader vision, however, requires a new generation of data catalogs and governance tools built on open standards that are adopted by a multi-vendor ecosystem of data platforms and tools. Work is already underway to define and deliver this capability, and there are multiple ways to engage. This guide covers the reasons why this new capability is critical for modern businesses and how you can get value from it.

Talk about marketing accountability has become almost commonplace. Most marketing executives understand the need to know the numbers. The real question is, ""Which numbers?"" Marketing Metrics in Action: Creating a Performance-Driven Marketing Organization answers those questions and addresses those problems with a balance of sound theory and technique and practical application. The author, a veteran of marketing on both ""sides""—the client side and the consultant side—explains how you need to begin by identifying the elements of the right culture. First, every company's product makeup, competitive situation, resources, and internal strengths and weaknesses differ. So do its needs for particular metrics. It is necessary to be able to identify which metrics matter to your organization's circumstances. Next it is necessary to create a culture of accountability. Everyone in the organization has to be –and be seen as being—on the same side and n the same page. Finance can't be seen as ""the enemy,"" and Sales and Marketing need work especially hard to coordinate their efforts. But this sense of accountability needs to extend from the C-Suite to the customer service and order entry people. Quality approaches and sophisticated ideas then become much more productive in the marketplace. A metrics audit will help establish where you are now, and mapping will enable you to align processes to better develop your dashboard. This book provides wise counsel for identifying which metrics matter most to your organization and practical guidance for putting all the sophisticated marketing tools to profitable use in your company.
