Purpose- The purpose of this study is to propose recommendations for organizations on creating strategies for BI adoption at both the organizational and individual level to help maximize the value of the BI investment.

Methodology- A significant literature review is conducted to identify key success factors. Thereafter, a model is introduced that will help to construct a strategy for BI adoption at both the organizational and the individual level.

Findings- The solution model presented in this work is separated into three sections: people, process, and technology. Working with a BI team and collaborating with department leadership, the Analytics Advisor creates and successfully implements a BI solution through an iterative and agile process.

Conclusion- This paper has demonstrated how an organization can increase its BI adoption rates by developing solutions for one department at a time. The solution enables the departments to implement a BI program that will provide value and a competitive advantage by improving the timeliness and quality of the decision-making process.
