Rethinking Data Basic Workshops

This session was awesome. We got some actionable ideas coming from this and will definitely put the learnings from this session to work!!!

You’ve probably been asked to be more “data-driven”.  But where do you start?  Having more data doesn’t necessarily make you a better decision-maker.  In fact, excess data may be slowing you down. You don’t need more data; you need the right data.

This workshop provides an overview of how to shift from being data-driven to being decision-driven.

Data-driven organizations focus on numbers.  Decision-driven organizations are able to quickly transform data into actions that drive results.

Workshop outcomes:

Improve fact-based decision making and actions by

  • Understanding and managing the three key biases that inhibit data-driven decision making
  • Quickly defining the data needed to make a decision so that you spend more time thinking about what the data is telling you and less time searching for it
  • Turning data into actions that drive decision making
  • Creating reports that provide answers rather than numbers thus significantly decreasing the time it takes to make a decision
  • Creating simple, logical, fact-driven recommendations and presentations that speed up and drive audience decision-making

Workshop components

  • Rethinking how we think – Provides an overview of how our brains process data and information.  Introduces common thinking and decision making errors/biases and shows how traditional ways of reviewing and presenting data actually contribute to those errors.
  • Rethinking communication – Introduces the “Value through Information” model which moves leaders from simply summarizing facts and figures to telling a comprehensive data-driven story.  Focuses on building an evidence-based argument that drives decisions and actions.
  • Rethinking our approach – Focuses on honing in on the data that is relevant to making a decision.  Improves leader efficiency by providing a structured approach to exploring data.
  • Rethinking reporting – Introduces Avail Advisor’s “Decision-based reporting” approach.  Decision-based reporting organizes information around answers and decisions rather than simply providing a data dump.
