Board can Struggle with Data Analysis

I’ve discussed visual analytics before, and its ability to bring actionable information to both the CEO and worker on the floor.  The Financial Times has just published the above Special Report saying that boards of companies are in need of someway to understand the data they’re given in order to act upon it.  Looks like we’re on the same page: examples of putting data put into understandable and actionable form for healthcare is the core of this weblog.

I would add that dynamic visual analytics is the next step in increasing data understanding.  It’s difficult to show on a weblog, but the idea is that of an analytic tool that can let the board member or process worker quickly and intuitively manipulate the graphical display to show relationships among the data.
