Analytics for Change Program Overview
Today’s cities generate data at an astounding rate. Growing almost as quickly are expectations about how such data can be used and how much value it can create with it being a challenge to often derive useful and actionable insights. As a participant of this one-and-a-half day course, you will acquire the skills required to frame and commission effective data-driven projects that lead to tangible, real-world outcomes. This program will also prepare you to partner with senior executives within your organization in order to design, implement, and evaluate analytics projects so that they consistently deliver measurable, scalable results.
The program will introduce you to tested frameworks for data diagnostics, acquisition, and sampling; to strategies for framing complex problems so they can be legitimately addressed by analytics work; and practical guidelines for working responsibly with data-driven insight. There is a special focus on the practical aspects of creating actionable insight in urban environments.
The course combines sessions by leading faculty, researchers, practitioners, and city leaders with case studies, cohort discussions, and professional one-on-one coaching. By the program’s end, you will have a foundation in project scoping and data-driving management that will empower you to contribute to making cities more efficient, livable, equitable, and resilient.
You will have the chance to hear directly from data analysts about what they do and do not find useful in the kinds of data-crunching requests they often receive, and how not to overlook opportunities to create valuable new insights given these requests. In addition, you will have the opportunity to engage with faculty and program participants in a useful networking forum.
