Seeking staff members who possess government analytics is no easy task. While people with good statistical modelling skills are required to analyze large data sets and compare and correlate the results, it’s also critical that they have an in-depth understanding of the type of organization you’re asking them to analyze when delivering public service for the future.
In this podcast, Martin Benison, Comptroller of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, discusses the key competencies to consider when hiring government analytics staff, from asking the right questions to drawing the right inferences from the data.
This podcast was recorded at the National Association of State Comptrollers (NASC) Annual Conference held in Reno, NV on March 13, 2014.
