Data Strategy

When you're faced with an ever-changing landscape, it's vital to have a clear vision of what your organisation needs to do for success. Data can contribute significantly to this – and the key to getting this right is a Data Strategy that gives a shared vision for everyone. It defines both short and long term goals, prioritises what's important to you, and helps demonstrate strong leadership and commitment to data management. Yet many organisations don't have one. Why is that? What's stopping them? It can feel really daunting when you’re not quite sure what it’s all about. In this talk, Effini share the principles of what a Data Strategy is, how it can help you, and small practical steps to take.
