Join Peter Aiken, Ph.D. and Micheline Casey for this interactive discussion on the role of Chief Data Officer (CDO) or Top Data Job (TDJ). While most agree that data challenges are getting – dare we say it, bigger? – the range of approaches reveals no emerging consensus as to the best way to address these challenges. This webinar features a wide-ranging discussion of a number of aspects of this exciting new career path. For each of these aspects, new data leaders can be congratulated but sometimes they also ought to be consoled. Ms. Casey (as the very first state CDO) and Dr. Aiken will bring certain considerations to the table. They hope to sample the pulse of the community and move towards consensus on a number of issues, including:
What is in a name/title?
Who are this individual’s peers?
Where does one obtain the requisite background to qualify?
How does RACI (a responsibility assignment matrix) apply?
When does data influence IT development efforts?
Why are these issues not better understood?
