Metis president and co-founder Jason Moss recently wrote an article on the topic for IT ProPortal called The Three Leagues of Data Literacy – and How to Play to Win. To add to the above, Moss writes that "while the sabermetrics revolution that swept through baseball forever changed the game, we haven’t yet seen an equivalent movement in business. In fact, companies leave a staggering 88% of data they collect on the cutting-room floor." 

According to Moss, the three leagues of data literacy are Lexical, Cultural, and Strategic. Read the piece in full to get lots more information on why data literacy in business is increasingly crucial.
