As easy as ABC: creating a data literate workforce

Data offers huge commercial opportunities to organisations, but only if it is collected and analysed correctly. Building a data-literate workforce is the critical first step in creating a company that is data-driven and thus equipped to make better decisions, faster than the competition, and to seize future opportunities. But many businesses in the Asia-Pacific suffer from a skills shortage, with staff lacking the ability to interpret and analyse the data they have at hand. 

Business leaders looking to fill these skill gaps face a competitive job market that makes hiring difficult. What do business leaders need to do to improve their people’s ability to analyse and interpret data? What strategies should be employed to enable a data culture to flourish across an organisation?

Join Charles Ross, principal policy & insights at Economist Impact and four business leaders as we explore how organisations in the Asia-Pacific can create a data-literate workforce that can capture future growth.
