Long ago, I defined business intelligence as a business process using data to make decisions. The key to the definition is “make decisions.” That is, to take action.
As consultant David Maister has said, we all know what to do, we just don’t do it. In other words, we don’t take ACTION.
A good idea is only an idea until we act on it. So look at your list of to-dos, and good ideas, whether it’s in data management or anything else. Which ones are you willing to take action on? Because only action matters.
