Masterclass Overview

Worldwide spend on Enterprise Software and Data Centre Systems exceeded USD$600 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach more than USD$700 billion in 2020. Collectively, we’ve invested billions of dollars building the systems and tools to help drive innovation and productivity, but many organisations are still struggling to realise the expected benefit of these investments. While we’ve been focussed on the process, systems and tools – we’ve forgotten one extremely important piece of the puzzle. The people.

Our people are they key to releasing the value invested in these systems – we need to unlock the potential of each employee and allow them to better understand – and participate – in the data landscape. We need to build and nurture data literacy across the organisation. The Data Literacy Virtual Masterclass gives participants the opportunity to experience a proven methodology to measure, map and develop data literacy across the organisation. Participants are asked to complete an individual data literacy assessment prior to the workshop – the results of which will be aggregated and discussed during the workshop

Don’t miss this opportunity to join this practical masterclass that will empower you with the tools and techniques you need to build a data literate workforce.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Event Schedule

9:00am: Masterclass Commences
4:30pm: End of Day One
Each day the facilitator will assign time for a morning, lunch and afternoon break.

Session one: Defining data literacy

We live in a time of bold digital transformation agendas, exponentially increasing volumes of data and a limited supply of talent with the skills to realise its potential. It is widely recognised that there is an urgent need for organisations to build and nurture data literacy across their workforces. But what exactly is ‘data literacy’? To start on an even footing, we will start by understanding what ‘data literacy’ is and why it matters. In this session participants will be introduced to the concept of data literacy and delve into the skills and competencies covered by this domain.

  • What is data literacy and why does it matter?
  • Introducing Databilities® – a data literacy competency framework

Session two: Measuring data literacy

Using the Databilities® framework, we now have the ability to measure data literacy both at an individual and organisational level. In this session participants will reflect on their experience in completing the individual assessment and be introduced to the group’s collective results.

  • Reviewing Databilities® measurement tools
  • Understanding and interpret group results
  • Identifying key strengths and opportunities from the group results

Session three: Mapping data literacy across the organisation

When it comes to building data literacy capability across the organisation, one size definitely does not fit all! Whilst it is inefficient to develop personalised plans for each person within the organisation, we can define – and attend to – groups of employees with similar characteristics. In this session participants will understand how dierent cohorts – or personas – can be identied within their organisation and how these personas can inform their data literacy program.

  • Identifying personas for your organisation
  • Understanding key features of each persona
  • Incorporating personas in the design of data literacy programs

9:00am: Masterclass Commences
4:30pm: End of Day Two
Each day the facilitator will assign time for a morning, lunch and afternoon break.

Session four: Developing data literacy across the organisation

Founded in Knowles’ 4 Principles of Andragogy, we will explore the range of activities and resources that should make up your data literacy program.  With a focus on learning through doing – we will discuss the features of a successful data literacy program and also identify features that should be avoided!  In this session participants will consider a range of tools and techniques to build and nurture data literacy across their organisation. 

  • Examining Knowles’ 4 Principles Of Andragogy
  • Assessing features of a successful data literacy program
  • Identifying tools and techniques to include in your data literacy program

Session five: Examining key findings from the Global Data Literacy Benchmarking

The recently released Global Data Literacy Benchmark provides an opportunity for us to understand data literacy across 5 regions, 14 industries and 9 occupations. The first of its kind, the Global Data Literacy Benchmark provides an insight into the challenge – and opportunity – faced by all regions, industries and occupations. In this session we will review the findings from this study, and explore key differences and similarities.

  • Reviewing findings from the Global Data Literacy Benchmark 
  • Identifying key similarities and differences between regions, industries and occupations
  • Exploring group results against relevant benchmark data sets.
