What is data literacy?
Data literacy is the ability to read, write, communicate, and reason with data. Data literacy skills are foundational for succeeding in the 21st century, and are the prerequisites for a career in data.
The importance of data literacy for organizations
Data literacy enables everyone within your organization to work with data effectively. Both leaders and employees agree on the importance of building data literacy skills. However, the data literacy skills gap stands in the way of realizing that vision.
Building data literacy skills eliminates the fear of data from the people of your organization, leading to sharpened decision making, productivity, improved employee retention, customer experience, and more.
