What You'll Learn


  1. Tom, you’ve been saying that data programs need regular people to be involved for some time now. Why is that?
  2. You’ve also been talking about “the data generation?” Can you explain that term and what it means for organizations?
  3. A lot of people in the data community have called out literacy as a necessary skill. But what you’re talking about goes way beyond literacy. Why is “data literacy” not enough?
  4. What you’re talking about will have enormous implications throughout any organization. How about people with “data” in their titles?

Webinar Overview

“Regular people,” those without data in their titles, are essential contributors to every data science, quality, architecture, governance, or monetization effort. This signals enormous opportunity both for them and for companies that engage them. During this fireside chat, Dr. Thomas Redman and Anne Marie Smith will discuss these opportunites and outline some implications for people with “data” in their titles. Additional questions from the audience will support this lively discussion.
