eBook: Four best practices for data driven decision-making in government agencies

Sponsored by Tableau

Governments are looking to align the technology, processes, and policies needed to leverage data, and use it as a strategic asset to support evidence-based policy and decision-making.

Legislation, policies, and standards can only go so far in helping agencies to share and use data. As the needs and expectations of government agencies grow, so too does their need to look at their own data practices.

This paper will cover four practices for your agency to make and communicate informed decisions including:

  • Defining and measuring metrics
  • Empowering your team
  • Interpreting and presenting data visually
  • Nurturing a culture of collaboration
