SSA & Company: Leadership in the Era of Big Data

In November 2016, SSA & Company (SSA) convened 25 senior executives across various industries—including manufacturing, construction, financial services, healthcare, energy, pharmaceuticals, private equity, and technology—in Philadelphia to discuss leadership strategies to generate business value from digital and advanced analytics. The discussion featured Deb Henretta, former Group President of Global e-Business at Procter & Gamble (P&G) and SSA Senior Advisor, and Michael Schrage, Research Fellow at the MIT Sloan School’s Center for Digital Business. Jason Meil, Managing Director of New Products and Innovation at SSA, moderated the discussion.

Despite investments in data tools and new technologies, few companies have seen transformative results. SSA’s recent survey of nearly 70 senior executives at Fortune 500 companies (in NYC, Chicago, and Philadelphia) revealed that leaders rate their companies as just middle of the road in data maturity (average of 2.5 out of 4).

In our playbook, we have captured four interesting ideas that emerged from the discussion. To read the playbook, please fill out the form below.
