Data for good

September 23, 2020


In brief

The new corporate imperative

Data is the key that unlocks social outcomes

Five principles

Be crystal clear about outcomes

  • Start with the end goal
  • Ask key questions
  • Launch the data discovery

Map your ecosystem

  • Identify core competencies—data, technology, skills
  • An inside-out approach?
  • An outside-in approach?

Expand capacity, expertise and insights

  • Build dynamic solutions with data
  • Create a cadre of managerial expertise
  • Effectively communicate the impact

Make ethics your default

  • Emphasize a values-oriented approach
  • Mitigate risks
  • Apply advanced techniques to protect privacy

Join the policy conversation

Governments can act as enablers or partners to ensure that projects with promise get scaled and replicated across a geography.

Your power to do good rests on the data
