But then, weeks later, you discover that people are not using what you’ve created. Your hard work dies in a dusty Inbox folder. Buried under hundreds of other priorities. Frustrating.
You think: “How can they not understand how important my input is?”
You are not alone. This is what many data professionals experience.
But there is a way to prevent this frustration.
