Digital data is an asset for your organization. Using it well involves managing it with integrity toward mission, just as you do your other resources. The characteristics of digital data require additional consideration for good management.

Lucy Bernholz will lead an interactive workshop to help participants identify the digital resources their organizations us. This inventory is the first step in developing the organizational practices and policies for collecting, storing, analyzing, and sharing digital resources in line with your mission. Participants will be introduced to a workbook that they can adapt and use at their organizations.
