EVERYDATA: Understanding the Data You Consume Every Day At Work

The reality is that most of us are not trained as data experts or statisticians — but many of us are required to make data-based decisions in our jobs on a daily basis. Sometimes these decisions are small, while other times they can be costly. Think about the faulty market analysis that results in a significant capital investment, or misinterpreted production data that causes a product to be dramatically under- or over-priced.  Or, the analysts at NASA who excluded critical data points about the operation of O-rings that resulted in the fated Challenger shuttle flight. In this address, Dr. Johnson works with your audience to understand what conclusions can (and cannot) be drawn from the data you routinely work with and what questions to ask about the data so you make better, fact-based decisions.

Audiences: Broad based. Any organization, association, functional team, or group that routinely makes decisions based on the data they receive. This includes businesspeople- (human resources, marketing, production, or finance professionals), journalists, policy-makers, lawyers, doctors, educators, students, and parents.

Categories: Business, Big data, Risk management, The Information Age, Technology, Future Trends, Change Management, Human Resources, Economy and Finance, Campus and University, Media and Journalism as a start

Testimonials

Bert Brandenburg

President, National Appleseed Foundation

“John has a true gift for being able to simplify complicated things – like data – and explain why it matters in each of our lives. When he speaks to a group about how to be smarter users of data, that group leaves the room as smarter users of data. And he makes it hugely enjoyable. Any group where elegant, intelligent solutions for using data are needed will benefit from what John has to say.”

DeMaurice Smith

Executive Director, NFL Players Association

“John is smart and an excellent speaker. He provides information that is clear and comprehensible to non-economists, and the audiences at our seminars and conferences have appreciated his perspectives. We look forward to having him at more of our programs.”

H. Kate Johnson

President, Law Seminars International

Processing the barrage of information we receive every day is a challenge. One that isn’t going away. As a fellow educator, I am inspired by John’s ability to completely engage his audience and, through great stories, equip them to be smarter consumers of the data around them.
