In the years that I have spent in presenting data to C-Level clients, I have learned that data alone does not create change. Nobody cares about data, they care about knowledge. Feeding data and numbers to people is not the same as giving them knowledge. As Sir Francis Bacon said, “Knowledge itself is power” and nothing drives change faster than knowledge. Knowledge empowers people to stand up and speak out. When you give people knowledge you are giving them reasons to listen to your recommendations, as well as the tools to implement them.
