How to Lose 20 Pounds of Bad Data

Problem Statement

Attendees will learn to evaluate the data that they are maintaining and evaluate the difference between good, excess, and bad data, and the importance of removing data silos to get a 360-degree view of their customers and organization.

Nonprofits are always collecting data. Whether it is donors, volunteers, clients, or community assessments, we need to make sure the data we are collecting is usable when making decisions that are critical to the nonprofit’s success.

In this workshop we will share how to:

  • Differentiate between good, excess, and bad data
  • Remove data silos
  • Achieve a 360-degree view of your organization’s work
  • Archive and back up data

The information presented will help attendeesĀ make data-driven decisions for their organization.
