The first challenge I was eager to face when I move from a measurement agency to an in-house position was to put together a complete measurement plan.
Obviously that's not the only one in the life of a data analyst, more follow right away like communicating it properly, get the required buy-in from the C-Level and the rest of the stakeholders, totally crucial, sort out the technical roadblocks to finally be able to spend most of your measurement time performing the tasks that hopefully drive positive changes in net profit or whatever is the goal.
It tries to cover all the bases so it fits better in the situation where the analytics culture is immature or non-existent. Some companies tend to think they have a culture around numbers because someone regurgitates some figures in a regular basis but "they don't know what they don't know" and if you are in charge to build it from the ground up that's when a roadmap makes completely sense.

The presentation you can see and download is the summary of that plan. Experts with more experience than me surely will find some holes to plug but I think it makes a pretty decent start.
Bring on all that constructive criticism!
BTE, What the cover represents is a lifetime project hopefully one day I'll be able to travel. Do you know what's the name of that route?
