Lean Data Practices for Civil Society Organizations (Sponsored Training)

Session Type(s): Training

Training Tag(s): Movement Health & Operations

All data is interesting, but only some data is useful. Lean Data Practices (“LDP”) are techniques for managing data. You don’t need an engineering degree or a dedicated budget to apply LDP. All you need is a commitment from your organization to consider data decisions thoughtfully. The pay-off? LDP helps you build trust with members and reduces operational risk. In this workshop, you’ll hear about the risks of having too much data, learn from real examples of organizers creating their list strategies with lean data, and discover how to mitigate the risks and apply Lean Data Practices to your work today. We’ll explore the LDP toolkit together and talk through different ways this approach can help guide your data collection and security. You’ll walk away with the toolkit and next-steps for securing your email lists and more!

This workshop is best suited for those who work with collecting, securing, and using data for organizing purposes.

This training is sponsored by the Mozilla Foundation.
