The first step in becoming a data-informed organization is undertaking a few data analysis projects. These first projects can often be very hard due to a lack of data, familiarity with tools, and technical training. Yet, these first projects are critical to becoming truly data-informed. The goal of this workshop is to put participants (and their organizations) on a direct path to successful first data projects by (1) demystifying data analysis for the participants and (2) helping them develop a concrete action plan that enables them achieve impactful data analysis on a specific problem using tools, staff, and data their organizations already have. The workshop begins with a brief discussion of what data collection and analysis is and how it is done. the goal is to demonstrate how high value analysis doesn't need to be technically complex. Discussion then focuses on how data analysis supports assessment of impact and efficiency. Emphasis is placed on how framing concrete analysis questions. Finally, we cover entry-level analysis tools (including Excel) used to conduct high-value analysis. Throughout the workshop, participants work through an interactive, collaborative exercise to identify and develop a detailed data analysis plan to support a specific analysis need in their organization.
