  3. 3. <ul><li>Facing up to where we were… </li></ul><ul><li>We collected data but did nothing with it </li></ul><ul><li>We weren’t sure what data was the most important </li></ul><ul><li>We weren’t sure how to report data </li></ul><ul><li>No one listened anyway </li></ul><ul><li>It (not surprisingly) did not lead to changes in behaviour </li></ul>
  4. 4. Solution: The K-CAR approach to developing a data strategy <ul><li>K ey Questions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What is it that we really want to know? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>C ollection </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What kind of information do we need? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A nalysis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What conclusions can we draw? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>R eporting </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How and with whom do we share? </li></ul></ul>

  14. 14. ISB operates on 26% turnover each year. The Board of Trustees changes at the same rate. Our ability to ‘forget’ in times of crisis is perhaps our biggest threat of all. An example of its use in practice

  17. 17. WHAT DOES HISTORY TEACH US? <ul><li>Despite a trend upwards, enrolment at ISB is ALWAYS cyclical </li></ul><ul><li>Periods of economic downturn have ALWAYS impacted enrolment at ISB </li></ul><ul><li>Typically the negative impact is felt over a 2-3 year period </li></ul><ul><li>The largest cumulative fall in enrolment was 1974-82: 22% </li></ul><ul><li>But remember that at this time the market was very different: >50% US prior to 1984, 24% today </li></ul>
  18. 18. WHAT DOES HISTORY TEACH US? <ul><li>A lot of learning from just annual enrolment figures </li></ul><ul><li>In the future, we will will have additional data such as visit/application patterns leading up to and following the current financial crisis </li></ul><ul><li>Moving from ‘guess and react’ to ‘forecast and prepare’ </li></ul>
