Wednesday, September 15th 2021 at 2:00 PM Eastern
With the new emphasis on using data for strategy, it's become apparent that success depends on having information in context of the problems being solved, and on developing a culture that is data-informed, not data-driven. This was the position Dr. Rick Burnette formed from his unique perspective of an institutional effectiveness and enrollment management administrator who suddenly found himself running IT as Interim CIO at Florida State University. Joined by Nuventive Senior Advisor Dr. Brent Ruben, he will share actionable insights on how the different disciplines can come together to deliver an order of magnitude improvement in an institution’s key initiatives.
In this session, designed for stakeholders in strategic planning, IE, student success, and IT, attendees will learn:
- How to give voice to data - translate raw numbers into insights using context and narrative.
- How to communicate across functions - mitigate unintended consequences by using information in context.
- The characteristics of a strategic CIO - capture, curate, and surface key information to facilitate achievement against plans.
