How It Works

Our industry-based assessments measure your organization's data and analytics capabilities against a maturity model and peers in your industry. They are a great way to quantify the value of your program, identify and prioritize capability gaps, benchmark against peers, and educate your team about best practices.   

The assessments are free, anonymous, and comprehensive. Each assessment is reviewed and governed by an oversight board of industry experts.  Currently, we have a benchmark assessment for the insurance industry with additional industries planned. We also offer a generic assessment suitable for organizations in any industry. Contact us for more information.

The assessments are not surveys; they are team-based projects geared to enterprise data and analytics teams. To participate, your team needs to have a Sponsor and a Team Lead who coordinates your team's responses. (See below.) 

Allow 2 to 4 weeks for a team to complete the assessment, depending on the coordination approach. As a baseline, An individual can complete the assessment in less than one hour of uninterrupted time.
