Most data, data science, AI, and digital transformation professionals are painfully aware that it is the people and culture issues, not technology, that hinder organizations from becoming data-driven. So how you do overcome cultural issues on the path of data transformation?

In this session, Tom Redman and Mai AlOwaish discuss the role people and data culture play in achieving true data transformation within organizations. They will also showcase a deepdive into the data transformation program at Gulf Bank of Kuwait and how rolling out a organization wide data literacy program made a lasting impact on its data and analytics practices.
