Ben Jones’s ‘Leading in the Age of Data’ is a must-read for all leaders… it’s the human factor—people with their knowledge, ethics, and culture—that remains the most pivotal element in ensuring success.
Organizations, vendors, and employees all say “Hey, you need a data culture.” But there are very few practical guides that actually provide the necessary steps. This is the vital gap the book fills. Ben’s conversational writing style is always a pleasure to read.
