"Garbage in" costs you 15-25% of revenue

Sep 14, 2020 Insight Time & Productivity

In this episode of Leader-to-Leader, John looks at a MIT Sloan Management Review article talking about how bad or inaccurate data costs you 15-25% of revenue. 3:11 mins

How does this happen? Because:

  • It only costs $1 to prevent an error.
  • But, it costs $10 to catch and fix the error after-the-fact.
  • And, it costs $100 to fix, if the customer finds it.

Since most organizations don't invest in prevention, they suffer the high cost of trying to catch and fix errors after-the-fact. This hurts the bottom line, over-and-over again, because, as the article points out, this is “a reactive approach to data quality. Accommodating bad data this way wastes time and is expensive.”
