After establishing these strategic objectives, make it a priority to get your users talking about their work day, struggles, obstacles, and how they make business decisions as pertains to data (my emphasis).I think it is essential when working with data to focus on decisions and on how data and analytics might improve those decisions. I also liked the focus on data mining as one of the steps - not just reporting and "soft" analysis tools - though I would add that deploying the results of data mining needs some serious consideration also. In this vein I also wrote about data integration and the importance of keeping the decision in mind.
