Charity think tank NPC has published a practical guide outlining the process for how charities can turn their raw data into wisdom and informed action. Data with Destiny draws on the Data, Information, Knowledge, Wisdom model. How to turn your charity’s data info meaningful action
The Data, Information, Knowledge, Wisdom model
Data is essential for an effective charity. But charities can be intimidated by data. While some may be collecting data successfully, they are often failing to use it to review, learn and improve their work. Some are collecting vast amounts of data but struggling to turn it into insights. Others are gleaning insights from data but not acting on them.
In this short practical guide, NPC outlines the process for how charities can turn their raw data into wisdom and informed action. NPC draws on the Data, Information, Knowledge, Wisdom model. Throughout, examples of charities already on this journey to help illustrate how this can be put into action are used.
