“The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.” –Carly Fiorina
Data can be a really intimidating topic to talk about as economic developers. What types of things should you be tracking? What out-of-the-ordinary items are site consultants looking for? Which numbers should you be keeping a pulse on to help support your community’s unique story?
Today Carla Sones and Faye Davis talk through all of these questions and more. Though site consultants usually come to your community already having large amounts of data, there are ways for economic developers to paint a more comprehensive picture utilizing their own particular statistics that only a local would be able to give insights on.
Listen in for Carla and Faye’s take on how data and analytics drive decision-making for all parties involved in the economic development process, which pieces of data site consultants would love to see, how pulse-checking your community makes a difference, and so much more.
