In episode 5 we talk to the co-author of two data focused books - Caroline Carruthers of Carruthers & Jackson.
Caroline was one of the early Chief Data Officers in the UK at a time when very little was known about the role. Over the length of her tenure she learnt, the hard way, what it meant to be a CDO and how critical the role was to the growth and success of Network Rail and then Lowell.
Caroline now runs Carruthers & Jackson with Peter Jackson - another CDO who has a passion for sharing the lessons he's learnt.
Together they have authored two highly acclaimed data focused books in 2 years. That's record time but it shows how much knowledge they have to share. Technically they spent years researching the books during their roles as CDOs. You can buy both their books through Amazon:
- The Chief Data Officer's Playbook
- Data Driven Business Transformation: How to Disrupt, Innovate & Stay Ahead of the Conversation
In this video Caroline shares tips on what companies need to look for when developing a Chief Data Officer role as well as the importance of data quality in today's business environment.
