Simplify Your Data and Your Strategy to Get It

June 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT



“Simplify Your Data and Your Strategy to Get It” will push you to reflect on the data your organization and programs collect, how to collect it, and how to put it into action. Not all data needs to show impact but when used effectively our data can have a profound impact in the way we manage our projects and programs, how we lead our teams, and how we understand the outcomes of our work in an agile way and adjust to the ever-shifting needs of our constituencies.

In this webinar, you will learn about how to categorize your data and a process to build a simple data management strategy, what you need in order to execute it successfully, and how to do so within your organization’s and/ or program’s resources and capacity. We will use case studies from participants in the workshop and help think through different ways to approach the issues that are brought forward in the room. In breakout sessions, we will work together to create a simple data management strategy. After presenting to the larger group, we discuss and reflect on the differences and similarities in our approaches and processes.

The training is designed to leave organizational and programmatic leaders with a better understanding of what a data management plan is, what steps need to be taken in order to create one, and how the plan can manifest into better organizational and programmatic learning, managing, and storytelling.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about data management and creating a data management plan
  • Explore the common pitfalls that lead to untrustworthy data and disconnected collection processes and databases
  • Discuss and contemplate the different uses of data and how we can use it to learn, manage, and communicate our impact
