Data + Leadership = Successful Change

The amount of data available in the world is expected to double by the end of 2024. The vast amount of data available will provide new challenges to the way we conduct business. During this workshop, we are going to talk about leadership in the data-driven world in which we live and work. Due to the vast quantity of data, there must be an organizational shift to incorporate data processes into the entire organization, not just the IT department. Yes, data is computer science and some may even say it is rocket science, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Using tools most employees currently have on their desktop PCs, most anyone can produce data and data analysis. And last, we will discuss how to keep computers from overtaking the human aspect of work.

Key Takeaways:

  • Data is no longer the job of the CIO or IT department. Everyone should think critically about the data they collect and how they use it. Making sure that everyone in the room is involved in the process of making AI is the only way that we can make sure it’s safe.
  • Data is not rocket science. Most data problems can be solved by your current employees. Ordinary people and managers who haven’t had a lot of training can use simple tools like Microsoft Excel to make powerful analyses. Find out what your business needs to do and then figure out how to do it.
  • Having a lot of data is great, but it isn’t the same as talking to your employees and customers. A lot of big data and analytics are used too much by many businesses when they are looking for strategic ideas. And, waiting too long to make decisions can slow down businesses, frustrate employees, and make them miss out on important opportunities. It’s sometimes better to just make a decision rather than get more information or think about it more.
