Data and Analytics
The Village is in pursuit of defining and implementing a data and analytics game plan that standardizes the application of the Strategic Plan’s Guiding Policy.
Why do we need a data and analytics game plan?
Our culture is very data driven, and data, when properly analyzed, can drive revenue and expense decision-making. The Village currently collects data from many different sources, but in order to maximize staff resources, the data and the analytical models that are best suited to drive revenue and expense decision-making need to be identified and consistently utilized.
How do we plan to define a data and analytics game plan?
Through the process of analyzing qualitative and quantitative data in order to drive revenue and expense decision-making. This multi-faceted project will be completed in the following phases:
Collect data, analytical models and analytical needs from departments.
Examination of data and analytical models used to identify key data and analytical needs.
Communicate key data, analytical models and analytical needs to departments for input and feedback.
Address analytical needs by performing analysis and providing analytical models for departments to utilize.
*Each phase will have its own scope, objective, due date, budget, and project plan.
Phase 1 is complete. The objective for Phase 2 is to examine data and analytical models currently being used and to identify key data and analytical needs.
Identify and summarize key data in use.
Examine analytical models in use.
Summarize analytical needs.
Draft common analyses templates for use by departments.
Who will ensure core services are properly defined?
Realizing a data and analytics game plan will be primarily dependent upon the collaborative interest and investment of the Village Board and the entire workforce. Secondary stakeholder groups may provide input. The team below is dedicated and committed to this project.
