Building your data maturity - the practicalities of data strategy
Project data analytics is going to… save lives, boost efficiency, improve diversity, reduce emissions, predict the future and revolutionise the way projects are delivered, and that’s all before breakfast. Many people are selling the dream of a better future, and all of this is true. However, few organisations have climbed to the top of the mountain and are waving their flags. There are far more stuck in the foothills waiting for the clouds to part.
One thing is clear there are vastly different levels of maturity and sophistication not only within various organisations but sometimes within the same organisation. So how do you know where you are on the journey, and what does it take to deliver some of these fantastic promises?
In this session, Richard Corderoy, MD of Data Consultancy, the Oakland Group, will explore what you should be trying to do at each stage of your data journey. Focussing on practical use cases, tools, and tips, giving you the skills and knowledge to help improve your project efficiency.
