We often work in isolation and wonder if our efforts are applied to key business/policy decisions. In order to best leverage the power of analytics to inform institutional policy, procedure, and financial decision making institutions need a new way to put data in the hands of executives to respond to rapid-fire questions. Using the metaphor of moving from an untamed data jungle to a well-planned data arboretum, this session will highlight practical approaches to surfacing vitally important information during high-stakes gatherings of executives and regents/trustees. Elevating data is key to ensuring a sound analytical culture of data-driven decision making.
