The capability to confidently diagnose and discern patterns and relationships in business data is essential for senior leaders to identify areas that can increase business value. Senior leaders need to be able to apply a critical mindset to the interrogation of financial and performance data and to their interactions with data providers and users. The ability to confidently know the strengths and weaknesses of performance metrics and how to apply these tools to achieve the organisation’s purpose requires agile and strategic leadership.

Knowing your data and their relationship to organisational performance is a skill that strategic leaders need to be comfortable with.
