First Speaker: Jed Summerton, Data Mindset, LLC

Title:

How to Tell Data Stories

Abstract:

In the digital economy, data is the new oil. Discovering a new insight from analyzing data is exciting – and just the beginning of the road to improvements in organizational performance. Getting started on that road requires presenting your data with a story that is compelling and builds support for your plan (and your career).

This overview of data storytelling will cover how to marshal your discovery into relevant points – the What, the So What, and the Then What – and how you can deliver them as a narrative to any audience in a way that resonates and inspires people to action.

Title:

Successful Data Governance and a Data-Driven Culture Requires "Data Dexterity"

Abstract:

Data Governance and a Data-Driven Culture are two foundational components in the knowledge base of any information-based organization, and both embody data quality and master data management. As data is an obvious essential underpinning of operations, business decision-making processes, and creating organizational wisdom, being proficient in using diverse and meaningful datasets is a requisite to position any organization for current and future success.

Regional, national, and global challenges and opportunities continue to grow ever more complex, and cannot be effectively fulfilled by even the most dedicated person working alone. A collaborative effort – with partners across business departments, subjects, and experience – using a variety of data sources, insights, methods, and technologies, must be developed and applied. “Data Dexterity” encompasses such a collaborative effort, in which an organization raises the overall data literacy of its teams by focusing on improving its ability to leverage information (not data) to make decisions, understanding the directional components of causation and correlation, maintaining an unwavering dedication to the ethical use of data, and visualizing information and knowledge to promote understanding and wisdom within and outside of the institution. This talk will delve into the details of what Data Dexterity is and why it is necessary to foster a Data-Driven Culture and have success within Data Governance.

His experience includes evaluation and outcomes studies, ROI analysis, IBNR determination, predictive modeling, risk adjustment methodologies, advanced data visualization, dashboard design and implementation, database development and management, and identifying and evaluating trends and forces in data.

David has extensive experience working with claims data, for Medicaid, Medicare, and Commercial lines of business. He recently held positions of Director of Performance Improvement & Strategic Analytics for a co-op healthcare insurance company and Director of Planning & Analytics for a community health program.
