Who Is Best In Your Organization When It Comes To Analytics?

I am currently sharing a survey asking my LinkedIn connections about what part of their business is the most successful when it comes to using analytics to drive decision-making.

If by chance you follow my blog, but don’t get my LinkedIn e-mails. Here is the survey:

As you may know, I have been working on a book about analytics and the data-driven cultures of companies who successfully use analytics. I have a quick question to ask you that will help me in my research.


Of the following business lines, which one is the business line in your organization that in your opinion best uses analytics when making key business decisions?  (Pick One)

  1. Sales & Business Development
  2. Marketing
  3. Operations
  4. Supply Chain/Inventory
  5. Legal, Risk & Compliance
  6. Customer Service
  7. Human Resources/Recruitment
  8. Strategic Planning
  9. No one really uses analytics in decision-making effectively.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, it will be really helpful.

I’d like to validate what my experience tells me are the areas who generally best do analytics. I’m also looking forward to finding out there people see as general weak spots.

I’ll be happy to share the overall results of the survey once it is complete.
