I am Angie Wills; I have worked for the Environment Agency for 17 years in various roles across the organisation from responding to environmental incidents to protecting people from flooding.
I am now the National Lead for Data Quality – where I use my knowledge of the organisation and culture of the Environment Agency to lead an improvement in the quality of our data which underpins our decision making.
DQPVS 1: Applying Data Quality and Confidence in the Environment Agency
The Environment Agency is a public sector organisation.
With increasing data transparency from public bodies, data quality is taking centre stage.
This session outlines our experience of using a pragmatic approach linking data quality and confidence to impact in our outcome focused organisation.
We will discuss:
- How we worked internally to identify and prioritise data quality and the risks when data fails to meet our expectations
- How we linked data quality to outcomes in an organisation that isn’t revenue driven
- The data quality issues we faced
- The benefits we realised
