'SPEED DATA-ING' WITH THE DIGITAL PARTNERSHIP

'SPEED DATA-ING' WITH THE DIGITAL PARTNERSHIP

The Scottish Local Government Data Community are hosting their first workshop of the year to identify, share and build solutions to data problems across the Local Government sector. 

 
 

Data representatives from various Local Authorities in Scotland make up the Data Community alongside representatives from Scottish Government and they are inviting colleagues from across the sector to join the workshop to share their data issues where a collaborative solution could be offered. The workshop is open to anyone within the Digital Partnership for Scottish Local Government who has an involvement in managing or using data and they are also encouraged to share with colleagues who they believe would benefit from the workshop.

 
 

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 17 February, 2-4pm on Microsoft Teams.

 

Agenda:
2pm - Introduction to event [Jonathan McDougall] 
2.05pm - Breaking Down Data Silos [Craig Paterson, Executive Education Adviser, The Data Lab]
2.15pm - Breakout Session [All]
3.15pm - Elevated User Stories [Nominated spokesperson from each session]
3.40pm - Q&A [Facilitated by Sally Kerr, Data Standards Project Manager, Scottish Government]

Prior to the workshop, registered attendees will be asked to complete a short user story* on a data issue they would like to solve. Attendees will be split into breakout sessions where their data user story can be shared, populated in the Data Community Backlog and as a result, will allow future collaborative work to solve the key issues faced by Local Government.
