Data management plays a central role in leading modern business schools forward. It supports external compliance, accreditation, rankings, stakeholder accountability, strategising, risk management, internal management-by-objectives, portfolio performance measurement, assurance of learning, publishing and granting quality assurance more generally – a list that can easily be further extended.As a consequence, business schools have to collect, process, analyse and maintain more data than ever before. This trend of institutional management becoming more data-driven is likely to continue in the foreseeable future. As data management is assuming a more strategic role in business school development, it also requires systematic senior management attention.
This how-to workshop will provide you with the tools to understand the power of data for creating strategy and finding ways to source, build, embed and recycle data in a smart and simple way for multiple purposes.
In this two-session workshop, you will develop an in-depth understanding of Smart Data Management in business schools and higher education contexts using an ecosystem perspective and you will be able to evaluate the positioning of your institution in the light of the basic principles and best practices of SDM.
The exercise between the two sessions will provide you with practical experience on how to write data requirements for a specific situation related to accreditation reporting and how that data will help you tell a compelling story of a school for a specific audience. The exercise will be case study based and will involve approx. a half-day of work. A Q&A session will close the workshop.
DURING THE WORKSHOP, YOU WILL LEARN
- how to develop data requirements to be able to collect the right reliable data from the right people;
- how to write data specifications to meet your needs for quality processes and reporting with the different departments such as IT, HR, etc.;
- how to recycle data in a smart way to reuse for smart data classification and efficient quality processes;
- how to communicate the data as a source for solving problems and identifying opportunities;
- how to use your skills and knowledge to influence and embed data management into your school strategy.
This two-session workshop is especially relevant to quality assurance professionals, professional and academic staff responsible for rankings and data management and anybody wishing to understand the power of data in business schools and higher education contexts.
