Event Details

Skills of the Datavores: How UK businesses are securing and managing talent to grow in a big data world 


Everyone knows that creating value from big data requires the right skills, but what does this mean in practice?

  

In this event, we report the first findings of a programme of research where we look at the skills implications of the data revolution, in collaboration with Creative Skillset and The Royal Statistical Society: 


The report is based on 45 interviews with experts in companies at the coalface of the data economy. It addresses the following questions: 


  • What are the data analysis skills needs of leading businesses?
  • How do these companies find top data talent?
  • What are the good practices to build high-performing data teams, keep creative data talent motivated, and manage the risks of exploratory big data projects?
  • How do policy and education need to change to improve the supply of data talent?


 We will present the findings of the research and have a panel discussion with industry experts. 


The event will be of interest to business leaders, managers and data practitioners who are considering the  skills and HR implications of the rise of big data and analytics, as well as policymakers and educators tasked with preparing their students for tomorrow’s data-rich workplaces.
