Read, Write, Think Data

Agenda

The process we follow when working with data is just as important as the tools we’re using. In this presentation, Ben Jones of Data Literacy will give you an overview of a new tool-agnostic framework that powers his company’s recently launched training program, Data Literacy Level 2: Working Effectively with Data, and the accompanying book “Read, Write, Think Data” (coming soon)! By the end of the webinar, you’ll be equipped with an understanding of The WISDOM Data-Working Flow, which you can use to pose suitable questions about your data, form hypotheses that can be tested, and convert raw data into the wisdom you need to make sound decisions at work and in life. This new framework was developed by Ben Jones, CEO of Data Literacy, award-winning data visualization designer, best-selling data author, and Professor of Data Visualization at the University of Washington. This new framework is applicable to all experience levels and useful to anyone who interacts with data and must use data to make decisions.
