Educational Workshop, Data-Driven Improvement: How to Use Data to Drive Meaningful Change
Measurement and the effective use of data are cornerstones of any improvement effort, from incremental changes to radical transformations, but it can be difficult to know where to begin. That’s why we’ve planned a one-day, in-person workshop on data-driven improvement. The workshop will explore how data can be used to drive the improvements we wish to see – setting up measurement systems that work, analyzing data to uncover new insights and monitoring improvements over time.
