Naked and Afraid: Organize, don't overexpose, your association for successful BI initiatives 

BI and IT projects are very different. But do you know how and in what ways? We'll dig into this with our special guests for another fabulous episode of Association Chat. 

Some questions we'll address:

•What are the common pitfalls?

•How do you transition from “historical” to “real time reporting” and how does this help an organization transition to BI?

•Where do I start?

•What tips do you have for being   successful?

•How to get organizational buy-in?
