Data and insight is an integral part of all good decision making. Enabling executive decision making through data leadership with a business outcome lens, by connecting data and insight with decision makers is important, but so is having a strong data culture throughout the whole organisation. Being enabled by data and insight is contingent on a data culture that has executive leadership and sponsorship, ensuring data and insight is fully integrated in all decision making. There are a number of key ingredients for this, including all participants’ involvement. In this talk Kate Kolich will share her inclusive approach to data leadership as an executive leadership team member, in her role as Assistant Governor/ General Manager of Information, Data, and Analytics at The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) Te Pūtea Matua. This talk will provide a high level overview of how the RBNZ as custodian of financial and economic data, uses and produces data and insight to enable decision making. Kate will outline how the intersection of data practitioners, consumers and decision makers leads to data innovation and data driven decision making.
