The Visual Organization: Data Visualization, Big Data, and the Quest for Better Decisions

Video Description

The era of Big Data has arrived, but most organizations are woefully unprepared. Enterprises erroneously believe and act like big data is a passing fad, and nothing has really changed. But big data is not a temporary blip. By acting as if it is, companies are missing out on tremendous opportunities. Yet amidst all of the hype and confusion, a new type of enterprise is emerging: the Visual Organization. In this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, technology expert and author Phil Simon describes the new types of data, new generation of tools and applications, new visualization technologies, and completely different mindset of truly visual organizations. Simon draws from numerous case studies in explaining how visual organizations are locating and leveraging valuable insights from the noise that is big data, are asking better questions, and are making better decisions.
