This is one of five half-day trainings taking place the day before the 2015 Leading Change Summit in Washington, D.C. Half-day trainings are open to both LCS attendees and non-LCS attendees. Space is limited.
This workshop will cover how the tools and methods of advanced analytics meet the operational and programmatic needs of nonprofits and foundations. Andrew Means and Matt Gee, co-founders of the data science shop The Impact Lab, will provide examples for how data is being used across the social sector, what kinds of problems and questions data science is best used for, and how data science can be used to approach evaluation in new ways. Attendees will leave with a strong understanding of how data might help them achieve their goals and address some of their challenges.
