How to Get The Most Out of Your Data | Mission Drive

What skills does your business need to get the most from data? What skills do you need to adapt to the changes data is driving in your sector? Where should you focus your investment?

Mission Drive is partnering with the Open Data Institute to help business leaders build a more balanced view of the skills they need, and to make better decisions when it comes to planning and delivering data skills programmes.

Why is this important? Well, most data skills programmes focus on data technologies. And, whilst technology is important to understand, businesses also need to consider how they get value from data, how they avoid harmful impact and how they adapt and change what they do.
