Why Data Matters Now More Than Ever With Randy Bean

Tuesday, October 26 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Virtual Event

The world is in a race to become data-driven—now more than ever. The warp-speed effort to organize scientific and epidemiological data from across the globe in a heroic effort to find a COVID–19 vaccine has illustrated the urgency and existential nature of this quest. We need data, science, facts, knowledge, and insight to make informed, wise, and critical decisions. Now more than ever, data matters, and having good data matters tremendously. During this event, Randy Bean will share perspectives from his newly published book, Fail Fast, Learn Faster: Lessons in Data-Drive Leadership in an Age of Disruption, Big Data, and AI, on how industry leaders will need to act faster, think differently, consider the ethical consequences, and embrace change to compete in the 21st century.
