Data Maturity: Using Data Tools to Improve Homeless Service System OutcomesOctober 11, 2017 2017 Fall Conference
This session provides an abbreviated version of The Data Maturity Training initiative, which aims to improve communities’ readiness to maximize use of data for improved system performance. This session focuses on helping staff who are already skilled with data determine needs in their communities, as well as educate others about how to use data to make decisions and determine whether these decisions have a positive impact. The training methodology is built on critical adult learning principles. Facilitators provide foundational knowledge on each topic and participants engage in peer learning through small group discussions and problem-solving activities. Experiential learning exercises allow participants to model each stage of a Data into Action Cycle, and facilitators debrief with participants throughout the session to promote self-reflection and to enhance real-life application of learned strategies for building a performance culture.
