DDVC #54: Where venture capital and data intersect. Every week.
Hiring Head of Data and setting that leader up for success is key. If you want a working solution built, it will get built that way. If you want a slide deck on what options you could take, assemble a small team to spend two hours a week on "data strategy research" away from their main job. Or hire a consultant. I see a many orgs do #2 and end up with slides, when what they really need is a solution.
