Think data and numbers are the same thing? Donald Farmer has a surprise for you!


By not telling people how the numbers were developed and not giving them the opportunity to investigate the numbers, you are not delivering a complete data analysis. (6:35).


Here are specific actions Donald recommends to more effectively use data:

KEY POINTS

  • Use data consistently in your conversations and communications. You need to be data-informed in addition to being data-driven. (3:40)
  • People often wait for a technological solution to a problem. Instead of waiting for a perfect solution to come along, start using your data at a basic level and build it up. (10:00)
  • We often don’t see the opportunities outside our comfort zone. Find a way bring your practiced skills into an uncomfortable situation. (18:35)
  • Think about how you might be wrong. This allows you to see a completely different point of view and possibly approach things in another way. (22:10)
  • Challenge your ideas and always test the edges of what you believe to be true. Think how the world would be different if the opposite of what we know were true. (26:24)
