This week you will learn about the strategies that shape the world of digital and data and why these strategies are important. You will learn what should be included in these strategies and how they should be applied when working with data.

Once we have the strategic base in place we can start working in practice with the data to create significant impact. You will learn the benefits of, and how to produce, an information/data asset register.

You will learn the fundamentals of how to work with data in a project context, how to analyse the data and how to engage with practitioners using available and repeatable toolkits to go through the processes and make it relevant to you.
