Data is everywhere—but for those of us who aren’t professional data analysts, the deluge can make it hard to separate signals from noise when we’re trying to make important decisions in our work. How do we ensure we’re not just picking data points which justify our existing assumptions, or distract from our bigger picture goals? How do we avoid data silos and empower broader organizational change using a shared source of truth? We need a holistic approach to working with data that’s agnostic of specific platforms, inputs, and metrics.
This Program is about melding two skills: harnessing the power and potential of data through modernized data literacy skills, and being good stewards of that information once we have it. We will explore how to gather and interpret data, learn how to articulate our findings, and leverage the synthesis between good analysis and good judgment to drive organizational change.
