“No matter how great an idea, no matter how valuable the insight, the message remains an abstraction unless leadership supports it. Sometimes that means overcoming inertia, traditional thinking, corporate boundaries, information silos, or healthy skepticism. Knowing how to approach the C-suite is a specialty of these new analysts, many of whom have learned to translate tech speak and statistical analysis into the language of business culture.” Helen Thompson, global marketing strategy manager, Esri.
