how dark is your data?

This was one amongst many topics discussed in last week’s very interesting event by CIO WaterCooler on managing data complexity.

How many habits and default thinking patterns do we apply to our daily interactions, our relationships both with our colleagues and at home? And what is the untapped potential of bringing these into our awareness?
