CASE STUDY EXAMPLE

Transforming the Data Strategy for a Restaurant Chain

A restaurant chain faced challenges in keeping their best staff and were struggling with declining customer satisfaction. Despite having an abundance of reports, the company struggled with data overload, misaligned metrics, and a lack of impactful insights. Their decision-making was more reliant on institutional knowledge rather than data-driven insights, indicating a gap in their data culture.

Background

The restaurant chain's existing data strategy was bogged down with reports that primarily focused on historical data, offering little value in terms of actionable insights. Key performance indicators (KPIs) suffered from conflicting definitions, leading to confusion and inefficiency. Furthermore, the existing reports were not structured to drive deep analytics or insights, and the company's claim of being data-driven did not translate into actual practice.

Approach

Our workshop addressed these challenges by revamping the restaurant's approach to data. After the initial weeks of the engagements and building consensus with business leaders, we determined the most impactful short-term and long term areas to focus on would be:

  • Value-Based Operations: Focusing on identifying revenue drivers and benchmarking customer sentiment.
  • Analytics & Insights: Developing an HR Operational Dashboard and an Executive Summary Scorecard.
  • Data Governance: Establishing definitions for key metrics across the company.
  • Data Literacy: Instituting Executive Champions and providing On-Demand Learning & Development for Data Literacy.

Outcomes

The implementation of these strategic changes led to remarkable improvements within just six months. Customer satisfaction saw a significant increase of over 30% and employee attrition decreased by 5% through wide adoption of new HR and executive dashboards. These outcomes were a direct result of the strategic shift in how the organization implemented and used data and analytics across its operations, demonstrating the effectiveness of our Data Strategy Workshop in transforming their approach to data for tangible business success.
