Data-driven is a mindset and not a system, it is how individuals think and make a decision. Data-driven organizational culture depends basically on having data-driven individuals, and many researches confirm that data is a mindset and not a technological issue.
So, here is a checklist of nine behaviors that data-driven people have:
Data collection related behaviors:
- [ ] I read a new book monthly
- [ ] I read news and analysis weekly
- [ ] When I have a critical decision, I ask at least three experts to get advice
- [ ] When I have a critical decision, I read a lot about topics related to that decision.
Data processing related behaviors:
- [ ] I use digital software to arrange my life (tasks managers, budget tracker, etc.)
- [ ] I relax and make mindful exercise at least once a day
- [ ] I am able to understand charts and indicators
Data use related behaviors:
- [ ] I don’t trust the insights and opinions that are NOT supported by data
- [ ] I balance using data and my intuition when I make a decision
