HR Data Storytelling

One of the most overlooked and undervalued aspects along the analytics value chain is in the “last mile” of value; specifically, how to tell a concise, coherent, and compelling story from the data to drive decisions and actions.  While there is ample supply of hard skills and capabilities in many analytics functions; the softer skills of contextualization and storytelling are in much shorter supply, especially in HR.  In fact, Forbes had foresaw the emergence of this trends as early as 2016. 

“Data are just summaries of thousands of stories – tell a few of those stories to make the data meaningful.” Dan Heath, Duke University Fellow
