The First 100 Days as CDO

Our Perspective

Define the Role Beyond the Hype

Clarify expectations for the role. Engage HR in workforce planning and recruitment. The CDO is not a regulatory role or an office to offload responsibilities for data.

Invest in Data Literacy

Data is not tangible, so users often don’t see the connections between their work and data services. When they are educated to spot those possibilities, they become co-builders in the data culture.

Sit at the C-Suite Table

The CDO role is not an IT project or buzzword. Its position in senior leadership signals its importance for the business and the large-scale transformation to come.
