About the Webinar

Achieving company-wide data literacy is a tall order, requiring advocacy, commitment, and investments in time, talent, and budget. Along the way, innumerable obstacles – practical, philosophical, or economic – can derail the effort.  

Plus, there is no single blueprint for success. While there is general agreement that data skills are lacking, what should be done is far less clear. As companies work to leverage the power of their data assets, they face an array of decisions about who, how, how much or how often they need to educate.  

How do companies decide if the results are worth the investment? How do they design a process to achieve their specific literacy goals?   

In this session, we discuss the many challenges to implementing literacy programs and how companies can navigate and overcome them.  

About the Speaker

Wendy D. Lynch, PhD

Founder, and Lynch Consulting

For over 35 years, Wendy Lynch, PhD has converted complex analytics into business value. At heart, she is a sense-maker and translator. A consultant to numerous Fortune 100 companies, her current work focuses on the application of Big Data solutions in Human Capital Management.

In 2022, she was awarded the Bill Whitmer Leadership Award for her sustained contributions to the science of corporate health.

As a research scientist working in the business world, Dr. Wendy Lynch has learned to straddle commercial and academic goals, translating analytic results into market success.

Through her roles in diverse work settings—including digital start-ups, century-old insurers, academic medical centers, consulting firms, health care providers and the board room—she became familiar (and fascinated) with the unique language of each. She also became familiar with the difficult dynamic that often exists between business and analytic teams—preventing them from collaborating effectively.

Those experiences led to her true passion of promoting clear and meaningful conversations that produce mutual understanding and success. The result is her new book Become an Analytic Translator, and an online course.

According to McKinsey there will be a need for 2-4 million analytic translators in the next decade. Dr. Lynch hopes to train many data professionals to fill those positions.
