Organizational design around business intelligence and business analytics has been evolving over the last few years. We have seen many different types of formations and naming conventions around the business intelligence competency center (BICC), the Business Analytics Center of Practice, the Center of Excellence. They may be virtual or structured. They may report to the CIO, CFO, the CEO or a line of business. However, in a recent survey by the Business Applications Research Center, it has been found that organizations who have this formation in their organization outperform in every area that was measured.
And, regardless of the exact details of how it is configured, it appears that the most successful design is when there is both a shared service center and a larger community of stakeholders that keep in regular communication. Perhaps is it a Business Analytics Community of Excellence? We would love to share thoughts, organizational design ideas and best practices in this area. How is your organization currently structured for success?
