Objectives:

Identify key data quality challenges, discuss their root causes and share examples of best practice . To identify key areas needing organisational change to improve data quality. Output from this session will be captured as notes and shared as a resource through the Data CPD Hub. Plan: Facilitated workshop @n8prp www.n8prp.org.uk Workshop Who thinks they spend more time on data preparation than on presenting their findings? How much time do you spend on data preparation and similar activities? (Looking for data, extracting data, transforming data, loading software, exploratory analysis, etc.)

Youre not alone: Data scientists spend up to 80% of their time engaged in data preparation (CrowdFlower Data Science Report 2016). What data scientists want is more support or direction from managers. @n8prp www.n8prp.org.uk Workshop 10:30-11:00 Group work Activity 1: 5 minutes, each of you write down the 3 data quality issues that cause you the most difficulties. (One issue per post-it.) Activity 2: 25 minutes, in your groups, discuss these issues. What do you think are the root causes? Share best practice if your organisation has done
