Data Readiness Tool
Try our FREE Data Readiness Self-Assesment tool and learn how data can improve your business
We created this complimentary tool to help you explore how ready your organisation is to unlock the potential of its data and support your mission and purpose.
What is a Data Readiness Self-Assesment?
The tool is designed to help you understand where you are in your data journey and identify your next steps. This assessment is particularly suited to small/medium sized businesses and third-Sector organisations.
In each section, you will be asked to select statement(s) that best describe to how things are currently done in your organisation.
Once you have chosen your ‘best match’ statements for each area, the tool will offer your feedback in the form of a report. This provides focus on topics and supporting online resources to get you started as you take your organisation’s plans forward. The report should be downloaded to allow you to explore these further in your own time, and with your co-workers (if appropriate.)
To get the best out of this tool, we recommend you take this assessment on your PC, laptop, or tablet in landscape mode. If you need to pause to consider a particular topic and return to the assessment, your answers will be saved for you to do so.
We encourage you to follow up with The Data Lab for further support. We offer workshops, online courses, funding assistance, and bespoke resources to help you on your data journey.
Get started now and discover how data can unlock new opportunities for your business. Remember, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.
