Principles for Data-Driven Decision Making
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. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine 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. Find out more and download the preliminary program on the event website. In case you cannot attend in person, we invite you to watch the webcast. If you intend to join us online, please register on this site as a webcast participant.
