Principles of Data-Driven Decision Making

Symposium and Webcast


September 14, 2017


Keck 100

500 Fifth St. NW
Washington, DC 20001



The abundance of large and complex data, coupled with powerful modeling techniques and analytic methods, creates tremendous opportunity for organizations and individuals to base their decisions on empirical evidence.  However, to appreciate both the capabilities and limitations of these data and tools, decision makers need some understanding of data science principles.  We invite you to attend our upcoming symposium and webcast on data-driven decision making that will take place on September 14, 2017 at the Keck Center in Washington, DC.  The event will highlight simple principles that can support data-driven decision making and help decision makers learn the right questions to ask when presented with new analyses.
