Program decision making has often been a contentious, time-consuming, and political process, focused Business officers are in the unique position of helping lead their institutions toward adopting a data-informed culture that includes both data protection and data use concepts. Although the importance of having a culture of data-informed decision making has long been accepted, most institutions have just begun developing their institutional analytics capacity.
In this session, panelists will describe their data governance journeys, including their institutions’ data governance structures, their pain points and celebrations, and how they have leveraged data governance practices to create a campus culture that embraces analytics. Regardless of where your campus is in your analytics journey, this session will help you eliminate the pitfalls of data silos and data hoarding and use data analytics to streamline business processes.
