As part of ODI Learning Month 2021 and the Building healthy open data ecosystems series, this session will enable participants to confidently work within their own ecosystems and begin to apply ecosystem mapping and theories of change to help leaders create strategies for building healthy data ecosystems.

This session is part of our Building healthy open data ecosystems [Learning Month 2021] series, a four-part interactive and practical course, where we’ll be looking at open data ecosystems, and helping you overcome challenges to unlock value from data.

Session overview

The aim of this session is to help you confidently work within your own ecosystems, and begin to apply mapping and theories of change, to help leaders create strategies for building healthy data ecosystems.

By the end of this session you’ll have:

  • Identified the fears and barriers that prevent data being shared openly.
  • Devised potential activities that help overcome common fears and barriers and form them into a theory of change.
  • Created a simple open data ecosystem map to prioritise those who want to be involved.

Who is this session for?

This session is perfect for those working with data: managers, policy-makers, technologists, directors, and those working in knowledge and transparency. This intensive, practical course has been carefully designed so you can apply your learnings to your work or project, problem solve, or create new opportunities.

When is the session?

October 5th 2021 @ 13:30 (BST) for 2.5 hours

Session prerequisites

No previous knowledge of data is required. An understanding of how data is used in your organisation will help you apply what you learn and take practical action.

What is ODI Learning Month?

National Learning and Development Month is a global event celebrated every October, that encourages people to learn and build brand new skills. In support and celebration of this, the ODI has our very own Learning Month that we run in tandem, ahead of our annual summit.

Each year we focus on different topics. This year to coincide with the theme of Summit 2021, we’ll be looking at how we’ve all become ‘data people’ – more conscious than ever of the data we produce, use and share. Our three key areas of education will be: Building healthy open data ecosystems, Leading data transformation, and Data governance and ethics. All brought to you via a mix of training, webinars, and podcasts. 

Our one-off programme has been created exclusively for Learning Month, and all of the training is available at a subsidised price. All the more reason to get stuck in and get learning!
