  11. 11. • Use the Right KPIs • The Only KPI that really matters is user adoption • The adoption goal for BI in the organization should be 100% • Ethics in analytics has been virtually ignored….don’t ignore it • Plan to leverage internal and external data sources 11 My BI Baker’s Dozen (Part 1)
  12. 12. • Determine if real time data is actually critical • Don’t ignore small data. Excel is still your friend • The perfect is the enemy of the good • Don’t totally robot yourself. Gut feelings + intuition + data = Good • Learn the tools you have before chasing after the next shiny thing 12 My BI Baker’s Dozen (Part 2)
  13. 13. • There is not one killer tool out there. Think about a toolkit and multiple models to types • The perfect is the enemy of the good • You want useful information…not just big data. 13 My BI Baker’s Dozen (Part 3)
