Scaling With Data Podcast (Your Culture is Built on Data)

By Ty Hagler | 2 Minute Read

Culture vs Data Group Selfie

Culture and data seem like opposing ideas, but in my conversation with Sean Steigerwald, founder of Malartu, we explored how the proper use of data can build a culture of transparency, accountability, and promote a healthy work-life balance.  Prior to the podcast, Sean and I have been enjoying exchanging books and ideas along this topic as we have sought to guide the growth of our respective companies.  Sean does a great job mixing the conversation with commentary and audio clips to keep the show moving along.  I highly recommend subscribing to Scaling with Data on iTunes as the podcast is off to a great start.
