Proving value eludes many data professionals.
Calculating ROI or cost benefit analysis is just the start. Data's real value emerges when we partner with stakeholders to recognise, articulate, and realise its multidimensional benefits.
In this session, public sector data leader Bandhu Das will share insights for developing high-impact data business cases encompassing holistic benefits to win investments and spark engagement for change. Through examples, he’ll share his "Value Matrix" framework that builds on the Treasury's five case model by incorporating change and engagement as essential enablers.
This session welcomes both public and private sector data professionals. The attendees will have the opportunity to share their experiences and challenges when pitching data programmes. The discussion will equip participants with practical frameworks to translate conceptual data solutions into funded initiatives that drive demonstrable value.
