Introducing Constituent Intelligence, a New Team Transforming Data into Action
Recorded On: 11/07/2019
Data is a valuable asset and deriving insights from the right data points -- and the right time -- expands our prospect pools and fundraising ambitions. So how do we enhance the ROI of our data at our organizations? At St. Thomas, our newly created Constituent Intelligence team focuses on putting "data into action" and expanding our view of alumni using data science. Throughout this process, we reduced the time and effort dedicated to manual work and increased the richness of our relationship, employment, and other data points. In this presentation, we will walk through this team transformation and share specific ways to tap into your existing data for new information.
This session is part of the Plug In to Data Science Bundle.
