I love mental model and frameworks. I have shared some frameworks on this blog already like 3 W’s (What, Why, what’s next) and 3 P’s (Platform, People, Process) focused on helping analytics leader figure what their analytics roadmap should be. I was reading ‘competing on analytics’ book and came across the 5 stages of Analytical competition which seemed like another framework worth sharing.
The two end of the spectrum are org is flying blind to org is competing through analytics. Stages are:
- Analytically impaired
- Localized Analytics
- Analytical aspirations
- Analytical companies
- Analytical competitor
You can read about each one of these here: Five Stages of Analytic Competition and you can read a synopsis of the book here.
