InnovateUS Summer Series: Defining Problems with Data


InnovateUS Summer Series: Defining Problems with Data

Jun 30

2:00 pm3:30 pm


The vast availability of data and new data science tools present opportunities for public sector employees to better harness the use of data in defining and solving problems. With an abundance of data, it is more important than ever to understand how to use tools to streamline data analysis to better solve problems.

In this one-hour virtual workshop, we will describe how data can be used to help define and solve problems. You will walk away with an understanding of how data can be used to help us identify and define our problems, as well as strategies for approaching and analyzing data.

Following the presentation, stay on for a 30 minute Q&A session to ask your questions, get personalized advice on how to move forward with your projects, and interact with other participants across state and agency lines.

Eric Reese, former director of the GovEx Academy, will be leading this training. Eric is an experienced leader and facilitator working with organizations around the world on data, learning, and public service. He has designed and led hundreds of programs, courses, and workshops on data and innovation with public sector organizations around the world, including city governments, Johns Hopkins University, the OECD, the Open Contracting Partnership, and various NGOs and foundations in the US and abroad. He also played baseball in college and is always happy to discuss the nuances of baseball/sports around the world (ask him how a Mexican former major leaguer in South Korea became his favorite baseball player).

Please note that space may be limited.

A Zoom calendar invite will be shared with all final participants during the week prior to the event.
