ICT4D Webinar: Taking Action on Data (Tuesday December 19th, 10am EST/ 2pm GMT)


Properly managing the increasing volumes and complexities of data is perhaps the biggest challenge of the information age. Organizations have more options to collect, store, share, analyze, and publish data than ever before.
This webinar, part of a monthly ICT4D Webinar series organized by CRS, the ICT4D Conference and NetHope, will share practical advice on dealing with the increasing complexity of data management, and how to better use data for evidence decision making.
Expert speakers will provide insights on key components of a solid organizational data strategy, including open data, responsible data, and real-time data for decision making. They will share their field experience of getting people on board with the concept of data for action, and discuss the need for a data-based culture.

Questions addressed include:
• What are the best practices for incorporating responsible data principles in institutional data management?
• What are the key learnings on the intersection of ICT4D and decision making: for tactical, and strategic perspectives?
• How are ICT4D tools used for single-loop learning vs. double-loop learning?
• How to overcome the challenges of a lack of data, or the overload of data in order to make swift decisions in the field.
• Why a data-based organizational culture needed, and its practical challenges.
• How to incentivize good individual and organizational ways of handling data.
