You’re not alone. In fact, poor data culture is a common problem for companies of all sizes and industries.

Whether you’ve been tasked with fixing your company’s data culture as part of a new role (such as a Data Scientist) or have decided to tackle this project on your own, there are some universal challenges that you can expect to face along the way.
