I’ve invented a new word. Or, rather, the observation of managers in the wild has suggested a new word:

Data + Asphyxiation = Datasphyxiation 

It is, simply, when the fetish for managing almost purely by data, and analysis, and spreadsheets chokes an organization’s ability to creatively and flexibly solve problems, focus on the customer's needs, or innovate.

Usually, death soon follows.
