New Online Courses for Data-Informed Management

  • Posted Aug 06, 2016

Many arts and cultural professionals tell us their organizations struggle to incorporate data effectively into their planning and decision making. Whether you are facing questions about financial health, seeking audience engagement insight, or looking to tell a stronger story of your organization’s needs or impact, DataArts' free online courses are here to help. Each course introduces key concepts, and provides related resources including case studies, and real-life scenarios to guide the collection and use of data to inform decision-making and build stronger organizations.

The first course in the series, Looking as We Leap, features Andrew Taylor, Associate Professor of Arts Management at American University, on how to connect data, observation and action to organizational decision-making.
