Data-driven transformation helps you capture new value creation opportunities with data

Taival can provide you with a practical checklist to help identify tangible value creation opportunities within your own business context.

Data-driven business transformation framework helps weave together the three essential cornerstones of data-driven business transformation:

  • the overall data-driven business model,
  • the specific value model within your business context,
  • and the operating model for translating the design into reality.

In the 2021 survey, Fortune 1000 companies reported struggling to make progress — and in many cases even losing ground — on managing data as a business asset, forging a data culture, competing on data and analytics, and using data to drive innovation. Only 29.2% report achieving transformational business outcomes, and just 30% report having developed a well-articulated data strategy. 

Perhaps most tellingly, just 24% of respondents said that they thought their organization was data-driven this past year, a decline from 37.8% the year before”

From our perspective, these are the two biggest mistakes organizations make:

  1. They underinvest in the organization (people, structure, or culture), process, and the strategic transformations needed to get on offense — in other words, to take full advantage of their data and the data analytics technologies at their disposal.
  2. They address data quality improperly, which leads them to waste critical resources (time and money) dealing with mundane issues. Bad data, in turn, breeds mistrust in the data, further slowing efforts to create advantage.”

As a data-driven business model partner,
we help you scale

Taival supported us in the digital platform program by developing a generic framework for customer lifecycle processes. The work was done through interviewing key stakeholders and reviewing existing process descriptions and other materials. Created material works as the basis for further solution and business architecture development. The co-creation model that Taival used was both agile and lean delivering desired outcome.

Taival Advisory ran a two-week rapid digital exploration project for Tampereen Raitiotie Oy together with Shape Helsinki. The project helped us create a structured digital development roadmap by interviewing the key stakeholders and facilitating a service design workshop together with most of our partners. The work helped us further clarify the future role of the company in the Tampere transportation value chain and has received excellent feedback from the company and participants.
