Data Strategy Review Service

peterjamesthomas.com Data Strategy Review Service

Peter James Thomas, the founder and lead author of peterjamesthomas.com, has helped many organisations to develop or refine their Data Strategies over the last 19 years. Now this cumulative experience and expertise is at the disposal of other organisations. In particular we are happy to launch our Data Strategy Review Service, which provides a cost-effective evaluation of existing or new Data Strategies.

If you are a senior data leader, new in role, one of your first tasks will be to either pull together a Data Strategy, or to review and existing one to check whether or not it is fit for purpose. Your own skills and background will of course come to bear in this work. However, many people also look for additional help in either kicking the tyres on a newly crafted Data Strategy, or checking that an older one is still relevant and fit-for-purpose. The problem is that such help does not come cheap and any external resource you engage may be less experienced than you might like. There is also the risk of getting involved in an open-ended consulting arrangement. To address these issues, the peterjamesthomas.com Data Strategy Review Service is fixed duration and fixed price, with costs starting at as little as £2,000 [1].

Also organisations are of different sizes, different complexities and different geographic spread. For example, we have helped ones ranging from large multinationals with multiple product or service lines to smaller domestic outfits, perhaps with just a single location, or one main product or service. Given this diversity, the Data Strategy Review Service comes in three tiers, Bronze, Silver and Gold, each with its own range of activities and its own fixed price.

Below is presented some information about each tier and you can also download our Data Strategy Review Service brochure. If you want to know more, just schedule a free call to discuss things.
