Rewards of Creating a Data-Driven Culture

Posted by Stephanie Patterson on 6/8/17 8:03 AM

Last week, Rhumbix hosted a panel discussion with Kris Lengieza, David Burns, Hitesh Dewan, and our very own Michael Myers on the challenges and opportunities of creating a data-driven culture. Moderated by Guy Skillet, Head of Construction Analytics at Rhumbix, we had over 50 attendees, many of whom had just wrapped up two and half days attending ENR FutureTech.

Data was a key theme at the ENR event, and the panel provided a great opportunity to discuss more fully some of the ideas presented while still fresh in everyone's mind.
