Data must be utilized to complete many tasks and solve problems effectively and efficiently across the university. Yet arriving at a conclusion first and then searching for the data to support a position is still a tempting and often-used approach in decision making. As we strive to improve in data-informed decision making on campus, how do we ensure individuals at every level of the organization ask good questions and are able to gather the right data for their needs? Further, how as a Jesuit Catholic university can we best balance being data-driven while also being mission-driven when needing to make a decision or provide a recommendation to others?
This interactive workshop will present a few examples of problem solving and decision-making to demonstrate effective ways to incorporate data into a more analytic process. Participants will gain a better understanding of data-informed vs data-driven making and learn about new strategies being implemented at JCU to improve access to data.
