Exploring models for a data4good community of practice
Case study: Research
Work: Research and analysis
This research was funded by CAST, the Centre for Acceleration of Social Technology, to explore potential models for creating a national Data4Good community of practice.
Following the success of our first national Data4Good Conference in November 2018, much of the delegate feedback centred around their delight at having a forum to share knowledge in this specific field, and the feeling that there were limited opportunities to get together with a community of ‘data for good’ people. This research reviewed the landscape of existing national Communities of Practice (CoPs) in the not-for-profit sector and field of data. The report includes six case studies and an analysis of a range of key factors to consider in creating a national ‘Data4Good’ Community of Practice.
