Using the Results

So you’ve gathered and interpreted your data in a timely fashion, and presented your data to key stakeholders – now what? The most important things to keep in mind as you execute the next step are active engagement with the information and making sure the insights go somewhere, rather than into another report that sits on a shelf. One of the most effective ways to ensure that the information is useful – and is being used – is by applying the learning together. Data-informed learning should take place as strategies are being implemented, allowing for shifts in a strategy as necessary.
