Kearney and Carnegie Mellon University recently surveyed 430 companies around the world, representing a wide range of geographies and industries, for the inaugural Leadership Excellence in Analytic Practices (LEAP) study. They found that enterprises getting the most out of analytics and BI are led by managers that concentrate more on collaboration, instilling confidence in their teams and empowering their active analytics community, while laggards focus on technology alone.
