Leveraging technologies to keep learning and upskilling ourselves during this period of time is a positive way to manage today’s global chaos. I have delivered a series of forums in different cities in China on this topic.
I have explored why and how we should reskill ourselves to become big data literate and empower ourselves and colleagues around us to be a Citizen Data Scientist so that we can unleash the power of big data in the real world.
A summary of my China Series Webinar on Big Data Literacy in April 2020 can be found here:
Traditional companies can compete well in the #DigitalEconomy if they can reskill & empower their employees with #BigData capabilities & #DataLiteracy. #Adsale, a leading exhibition services company in Asia, is a great example.
My team & I have conducted a 2 days big data workshop to Adsale’s 60+ employees from top to middle mgt, from sales to ops. The learning culture of Adsale is what I admired the most. A traditional company has the practice to keep innovating & learning every year, from #DesignThinking, to #BigData & #AI. Big Data is an enabler but an innovative culture is the key for any big data project success. In today’s digital era, every company needs to be #DataDriven & every employee needs to be #CitizenDataScientist in order to have the right to compete.
We talked about the core concepts, applications, monetization, platform, cases, implementation, challenge, org issues, prioritization, governance & more. I also invited big data #startups #LivelyImpact #ClareAI #Luna2 #Radica to share their innovations & IT veteran Andrew Ling to share his experience as #CIO of several major traditional companies. All these discussions were fruitful & practical.
Thanks to all guests, Adsale’s mgt & their teammates, my partner Ivan Ng for their active participation.
