Data and Analytics Innovation Fellow
This session will include a moderated Q&A featuring questions from the live audience.
Data literacy (or data fluency) has risen in the ranks to become the top challenge and opportunity for data and analytics leaders in helping their organizations become more data-driven. Cultural and political issues abound in many organizations regarding data, mainly due to a lack of appreciation for its role as an actual business asset, a lack of understanding of its unique economic properties and how to capitalize on them, a lack of concern for data governance and how it contributes to business value, and an overall lack of being able to “speak data.”
In this session, Mr. Laney will share insights from West Monroe’s experience in developing and delivering data literacy programs that are embedded into and integrated with the business, including:
- Data literacy challenges, opportunities, and recommendations
- Building a business case for a data literacy program
- Crafting a data literacy training and certification curriculum
- Connecting your data literacy program to other business and technology initiatives
