JCURV has helped transform the speed, efficiency and effectiveness of how Sainsbury's extract value from its data. Listen to Helen Hunter's story as CDO.

DATAGILITY

OUR APPROACH
  • JCURV has an award winning practice where we have successfully supported several of the UK’s largest data transformations

  • We build effective data analytics functions by combining changes to behaviours, culture and people with the right methodology and technical data capability - We call this ‘Datagility’.

  • Our approach is unique, focusing primarily on changing peoples ways of working, not just technical data capability


  • The approach incrementally delivers business value every 30 days. This rapid way of working allows the CDO function to ‘earn the right’ to invest further.  Our approach focuses on building immediate sustainable capability, so after JCURV leaves, the team continues to improve. We do this by:

  1. ​Onboarding and aligning the senior leadership team around the benefits case for data and agree a set of ways of working that they will immediately start to role model to unlock the value of data
  2. Mobilising a set of pilots and teams to experiment with the new ways of working 
  3. Define the broader data strategy and begin to scale the ways of working to deliver the defined transformation strategy
  4. Continually review progress every 30 and 90 days as an organisation to continuously improve and strengthen the ways of working.
We worked with the Chief Data Officer at DLG Group to define the data strategy and begin to transform the function using agile ways of working.
Worked with the Chief Data Officer and the Exco of Mencap introducing agile ways of working to initially improve the insights service managers received to improve care quality and efficiency.
Nicky Klein explains the role of a CDO in a data transformation.
  • Organisations are becoming increasingly overwhelmed with data but frequently struggle to extract the expected value from it and at the speed required. Data transformations are often overly reliant on technology to address these challenges, but based on our experience it is the behaviours and culture which are critical in unlocking the value of data at the pace required.
