60 second reads: A series of quick insights from Morgan Young’s Managing Partners

(Question from a recent industry forum at which James Young, Managing Partner spoke)

Digital innovation has extended well beyond the realm of ‘technology’ and is becoming pivotal in nearly all industries. From my Morgan Young’s perspective, it’s positions in Advanced Analytics, Decisions Sciences and Data Science – roles where people set a strategy to utilize a company’s data assets; roles where people build usable architecture and platforms, and then resource teams to utilise those tools to deliver meaningful insights across the enterprise.

This area, as a functional discipline, has brought together strategy, analytics, architecture, information management, marketing, product and in financial services – risk management.

Alongside this we have also seen significant focus on Information Security. This area can be highly technical and those that excel in this area, like in many technical areas, are those that can align what they are doing to group strategy; find the right balance between risk and reward; and explain what they are doing and how they are doing it to non-technical audiences so that it is meaningful to other executives.

If you are having difficulty filling a position in the areas of Advanced Analytics, Decision Sciences, Data Science and related disciplines, or would like further insights on the topic, get in touch with one of our Managing Partners.
