Data is more than a mere commodity in our digital world. It is the ebb and flow of our modern existence. Individuals, teams, and enterprises working with data can unlock a new realm of possibilities. And the resultant agility, growth, and inevitable success have one origin―data literacy. This session will feature two data literacy pioneers, Kevin Hanegan and Angelika Klidas, each with a thorough footprint within the data and analytics commercial world and lecturers at top universities in the US and the Netherlands.
Based on their book, Data Literacy in Practice, this session will help you start making your data work for you by understanding how to approach building data literacy within your organization. You'll learn the four-pillar model that underpins all data and analytics and explore concepts such as measuring data quality, setting up a pragmatic data management environment, choosing the right graphs for your readers, and questioning your insights. By the end of the session, you'll be equipped with a combination of skills and mindset as well as with tools and frameworks that will allow you to find insights and meaning within your data for data-informed decision making.
