Tom Redman Writes:

Most companies and government agencies address data quality reactively, after errors are made and, as a direct result, suffer from bad data.  To date, it has taken a special person, to challenge the status quo within his or her work team, address data quality by “getting in front” of the issues, making a huge improvement, and, in effect, showing the rest of the company what is possible.  I call this person the “data provocateur.” 

I’ve recently introduced the term publicly (see for example, “Data Quality Should be Everyone’s Responsibility” in HBR) and many people have asked “how can I become a data provocateur?”  This Data Provocateur’s boot camp provides the answer.  It aims:

  • To provide you the skinniest possible set of material needed to become an effective data provocateur and
  • To empower and embolden you to move forward.

This webinar aims to provide a fast, powerful first step, which involves answering the question, “Do I/we have a data quality problem?”
