Getting a head start in your new role is critical to your success.
Not just for you, but for your company, business-technology leaders, and teams. 

Think you have an entire year to start delivering results in your new role? Think again.

As a newly appointed data leader, you knew what you would be dealing with:

  • Heightened expectations from peers, executives, and regulators.
  • Considerable internal and external challenges.
  • Plenty of opportunities to make lasting change in the way the company functions serve customers and grow in a competitive market.
  • All this with little time to make an impact, limited budget, competition for talent, and ever-changing technology, data, and analytics landscape.

Many data leaders want to act with urgency but are unable to deliver. You may have the right intent, but the demand on your time and attention is too much that it is hard for you to move fast and execute results sooner than later.

The foundation REQUIRED TO DELIVER SUCCESS MUST be created early, especially starting with what you do in the first 90-180 days. IT IS HARD.

When you have competing priorities, many masters, not enough "leader-doer" talent, and you are starting from nothing or from a state of chaos but filled with opportunities. The expectations are high, and there are risks around every corner, but the possibilities that come with your role as data leader are endless, only if you can create successful outcomes within your first year on the job.


Length of engagement, team composition, and capacity determined based on company size, team mandates, and situational complexities
Right after you join your new job, you are probably asking, What did I inherit in my role, and what challenges exist?"

Understanding where you are is as important as knowing where you want to go.  We help you get clarity on your role inheritance and accelerate the transition. 

Situational Analysis saves companies and careers when done right. A sound sense of situational awareness is vital to leadership decision making. 

As the incoming data leader, you must know three things about your inheritance:

  1. Context (what is happening)
  2. Circumstance (what has happened)
  3. Consequence (what could happen)

When you add the right perception to this, you will be able to make the right decisions. We provide you with insightful assessment and recommendations on your situation across five different areas based on our KHYANA5D method, a core aspect of our Corpsulting Approach.

24 Weeks

Typical Coverage

Whichever package we use for your project, the situational analysis work to accelerate your transition will cover the five areas of the KHYANA5D framework.

Our reports will assimilate information from data provided, interviews, surveys, and expert analysis.  

You will receive comprehensive assessments, recommendations, and identification of near-term/short-term risks and opportunities. 

The scope of work is time-bound (and may not address everything) and intended to get you a quick read of your inheritance in the new role.

Additional work will be handled as project add-on or subsequent work orders.
