From Data to Decisions: Strategies for Building a Data-Driven Culture with Kevin Hanegan

Episode #49

In a world where data is the new oil, being able to understand, analyse and interpret it is a vital skill. As the saying goes, "knowledge is power," and in this case, data literacy is the key to unlocking that power.

I argue that data literacy is as important to individual and organisational success as computer literacy, but unfortunately that is not a consensus view. For many organisations and their leaders, low data literacy is hampering their ability to make effective, data-driven decisions.

What is the key to creating a data literate organisation and unlocking the true potential of your data?

Who better to guide us through the many aspects of this question than data literacy expert Kevin Hanegan.

Kevin is the Chief Learning Officer at Qlik and a renowned author of the books “Data Literacy in Practice” and “Turning Data into Wisdom”.

In this episode of Leaders of Analytics, Kevin will be sharing invaluable insights and expertise from his books and his work at Qlik.

Listen in as we explore:

  • How data literacy can transform businesses, boost individual careers, and help us make better-informed decisions
  • Practical tips and strategies for developing data literacy skills
  • Common misconceptions or challenges that hold people back from becoming data literate, and how to overcome these
  • How to foster a data-driven culture within organisations, and much more.
