2017 Winner Profile

Owens Corning

Project Description:
Owens Corning Global Information Services sought to rapidly grow and embed adoption of its award-winning analytics practice in the enterprise. Within this context the company developed a gamification program and curriculum to engage and support its employees in their education and adoption of analytics. By developing and establishing gamification, "Analytics 4 Action" came to life. The program provided a new Analytics 4 Action collaboration center in the company's headquarters, "drop in" hours for analytics consulting, including bring-your-own-data sessions where employees bring datasets to company experts to help them make sense of it. In six months, hundreds of employees had participated in the program, improving their analytics prowess and benefiting the company and their own personal development. As employees achieved new levels of expertise they were awarded super hero status in the Analytics 4 Action game, winning awards and recognition along the way. In the first six months of the program, Owens Corning identified and certified over $7 million of revenue or cost savings.
