Data-Informed? Data-Driven? Just Help Me Use My Data!
Okay, I get it – data is ALL the rage right now! But I’m not a data scientist! I just want to be able to use my data to GET THINGS DONE! Where do I start?
Data can help us answer so many questions, but only if we know how to successfully leverage the power of data. You do not need to be a technical expert with years of data analysis or be called a data scientist! You simply need to know some basics on how both your business and the data is setup. Then with a few good questions, you can pull together some powerful insights that help teams make informed decisions!
In this session, Jamie will walk you through how to approach using data to help you make informed decision-making. We’ll discuss how you can figure out what data you need to present viable recommendations to leadership. We’ll also list out the steps for working with the “data people” to get information that helps your decision-making processes. And of course, we’ll go over IIBA’s support of business data analytics and what you can do to support your business analysis career!
You’ll leave the session knowing:
- What questions to ask to utilize your data
- Ways to approach communication about data
- How to deliver informed conclusions to drive smarter and faster decision making
