On Analysing Big Data and Storytelling

There’s a neat post on analysing big data and storytelling on an HBR blog worth checking out. From the post:

That’s a neat summary of what data is all about: to allow us to make better decisions (“asking questions” and “creating directives”) and implement them (“telling its story” – sex isn’t the only thing that sells; stories do great, too).
