Defining Data Literacy
The Leaders’ Data Group defines Data Literacy as the ability to find, access, analyze, interpret, apply, manage and communicate with data, while being aware of the opportunities, ramifications and risks”.
Data Literacy is about more than technology or tool-set skills. It is about developing business competencies relevant to the role and tasks of team members.
Data Literacy is about changing how people think about information so they can deliver sustainable value through data, and have pride in a job well done!
Data Competence = Data Literacy in Business Context
The ability to understand and work with data must be grounded in the business context of the team. Data Literacy must be constantly developed in the organisation as the business context evolves. Business context evolves in response to changing business strategy, regulatory drivers, or organisational change.
Castlebridge helps change how people think about data, supporting the development of Data Competency in Context.
