Level:  Intermediate

Few subjects in data quality management inspire more dread than measurement and control. There are so many options and most are expensive, fraught with peril, and devastatingly difficult. Worse, management rarely understands the results anyway.

This workshop aims to prove that it doesn’t have to be this way. It presents some simple ways to think about data quality measurement and control, start quickly and effectively, and do more as you and your organization gain experience. We’ll cover the following:
• A simple framework for understanding the dizzying array of measurement options and selecting appropriate ones for your organization
• “How-to” view measurement as a process
• “How-to” get your hands dirty with some simple measurements and evolve to more sophisticated ones
• “How-to” measure accuracy
• “How-to” present results in simple, powerful ways to compel management action
• A simple framework for understanding “control,” and
• What you really need to know about statistical process control (SPC), but were afraid to ask

All in a fast-paced, interactive, workshop-style.
