An article in the Economist in 2017 stated “The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. Data fuels innovation, drives growth, and empowers decision-making. But having data alone is not enough. You need to know how to use it effectively and ethically. Data can be a source of risk if it is not analyzed correctly.  Just like oil, data can be misused, it can leak, it can pollute and it can cause fires that are difficult to put out. Incorrect analysis of data can lead to poor decisions, lost opportunities, wasted resources, and damaged reputation.  The consequences of poor data analysis are:  

Data analysis is supposed to provide reliable and actionable information that can help you improve your performance, optimize your processes, and achieve your goals. But if your data is flawed, incomplete, inconsistent, or outdated, the analysis will be unreliable and misleading. E.g. if  you use faulty data to segment your customers, you may target the wrong audience, offer irrelevant products or services, or miss out on potential sales. And if you work in health and social care you may end up putting lives at risk. 

Data analysis can help you identify new opportunities, increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, reduce costs and risks, and enhance your competitive advantage. But if your data analysis is incorrect, you may miss out on these benefits or even incur losses. E.g. if you use incorrect data to set your prices, you may charge the wrong amount for your products or services, losing customers or profits. And if you use incorrect data to measure your performance, you will fail to detect problems or inefficiencies that are affecting your bottom line.

Data analysis can help you establish your reputation as a reliable and trustworthy partner for your customers, suppliers, investors, regulators, and other stakeholders. But if your data analysis is incorrect, you may lose credibility and trustworthiness. E.g. if you use incorrect data to report your financial results, you may face legal consequences, fines, penalties, or audits. And if you use incorrect data to communicate with your stakeholders, you may damage your brand image and reputation.

To avoid these potential negative impacts, you should ensure that you have high-quality data that is accurate, complete, consistent, timely, and relevant. Most importantly, you should ensure that you have skilled and competent data analysts who understand the limitations of your data, and can perform accurate and reliable data analysis. That's why you need good quality training in data and analysis, ensuring you can avoid potential data analysis issues and unleash the power of your data to drive your success. 

Training in data and analysis can help you unlock the full potential of your data. 

Good training in data and analysis can also help you comply with the GDPR and UK law.
