Monetary value of data - Rhona MacLennan

Hear Rhona MacLennan (Principle Solutions Architect at The Data Lab) talk about how she considers value when doing data projects.

Rhona MacLennan is The Data Lab’s Principal Solutions Architect.

Rhona has very wide ranging data experience. I asked Rhona to introduce herself and to talk about how she considers value when doing data projects. I think she gives a great example of the monetary value you can attribute to data.

It was great to hear about the benefits of managing data correctly. Rhona also raised many points discussed by the other practitioners contributing to the course:

  • Make sure you have clear business outcomes.

  • Start small to increase your likelihood of success.

  • Focus on what on what matters, what resonates with stakeholders.

I hope you will agree that by focusing on value, and outcomes, you can overcome some of the barriers to success.
