Data is Key to Powering Gov at Business Speed


As we prepare for GovLoop’s Second Annual State and Local Innovators Virtual Summit, we are posting blogs about many of the sessions and some of the tips and best practices are experts will share. The summit is September 16th from 10AM-5PM ET and free for everyone — make sure to register here!  

Leaders in the public sector in state and local governments have learned the key to moving government at the speed of business: data analytics. State governments are leading the way in improving efficiency and transparency by increasing the use of data across different government agencies. Implementing data analytics across government platforms will help any agency achieve real and measurable success in breaking down silos that hold up progress – by using data to help make smarter decisions.

Join GovLoop’s upcoming Virtual Summit and KSM Consulting’s Director of Strategy, John Roach as he shares the benefits of implementing performance management tools and a robust analytics platform to create more effective government at every level.

Having launched KSM Consulting’s Data Analytics practice in 2012, Roach advised public sector agencies to transform data into a strategic asset that has multiple benefits. In this online training, Roach will share the necessary steps to secure these accomplishments, as well as the specific tools and methods to achieve and measure your goals, including these major benefits:

  • A better understanding of your constituents and how to serve them;
  • The ability to make data-driven decisions across different agencies;
  • Accessing information in real-time.

Implementing management and analytics tools allows government to dramatically simplify and increase the use of data across different agencies. Learning how to work within and across agencies will improve the productivity of any government entity. This shared use of resources helps to improve constituent services while also increasing efficiency with managing state funds. The online training will provide invaluable expertise to help your government operate as effectively as any business.

“Breaking Down Silos and Combining Data to Move Your Government at the Speed of Business” is part of GovLoop’s State and Local Innovators Virtual Summit, an all-day, virtual event with 6 different online trainings, networking opportunities and resources to help you do your job better. It takes place on September 16th. You can see the schedule and register here for free. You can earn up to 6 CPEs by attending, so be sure to register and share with your colleagues!
