There appear to be almost unlimited opportunities to put data to work, make better decisions, and employ advanced analytics to uncover hidden treasures buried in the data.
It takes a lot to succeed in the data space.
You and your organisation must develop new skills, tear down silos, and improve quality. So how can companies and government agencies get started?
It takes a special person, called the “data provocateur” to take the first steps. These special people are the spark that lights the data fire, putting their companies and government agencies on a path to a better future in data.
This webinar will discuss the experiences of several data provocateurs. We have two goals. Firstly, to help you see the provocateur in yourself and second, to tempt you to sign up for some very special workshops and seminars in October.
In this Seminar you will hear some of the most effective ways to improve data quality and be among peers that are on the same path you are – or will be.
Read more about the role of a Data Provocateur in Dr Redman’s Harvard Business Review article, Assess Whether You Have a Data Quality Problem.
Tom authored Getting In Front on Data: The Who Does What and Data Driven. He is also a regular feature writer for the Harvard Business Review. His articles include How to think like a Data Scientist, Data Credibility Problem, Are you ready for a Chief Data Officer? and Does Your Company Know What to Do with All Its Data?.
This is the single best book ever written on data quality. Clear, concise, and actionable. We all want to leverage our data resources to drive growth, but we too often ignore the fundamentals of data quality, which almost always inhibits our success. Tom lays out a clear path for each organization to holistically improve not only its data quality, but more importantly the performance of its business as a whole.

In a word, Tom’s Data Driven book is SUPERB. I regularly recommend this book to people, and in fact right now it is on loan to an Enterprise Data Architect who works in a different industry…
This book is as relevant and important as it was when released in 2008
