Data Strategy Canvas

Using the Data Strategy Canvas you can concretize and evaluate utilization strategies for your corporate data. The visual collaboration tool helps you to develop analytical applications in interdisciplinary teams, to identify critical questions regarding the feasibility as well as to derive the resources required for the realization (data, tools, employees etc.).

What Is the Data Strategy Canvas?

The Data Strategy Canvas is a central tool within the Data Strategy Design method. It helps you to answer the three critical questions of a data strategy:

  1. Utilization: why do we need a data strategy? – Hence: which corporate targets do you want to achieve by utilizing the data?
  2. Refinement: how does our data strategy look like? – As soon as you know the target, you need to define the path towards it: how can you refine the data to valuable information?
  3. (Data) Sourcing: which data do we need for this? – Next you think of the data already available to you and which additional data sources you can tap.

Furthermore, the Data Strategy Canvas enables you to derive the resources required to realize the data strategy:

  1. Tools: which analytical tools, database systems, programming languages etc. are required to source, refine and utilize the data?
  2. People: who uses these tools and has the required skills and knowledge?
  3. Partners: which partners do provide us with data, tools or staff?
