If your employees touch your data, from the moment that person arrives on their first day and throughout their career, they should be immersed in data-design thinking. From IT to analysts to programmers to designers — each is responsible for bringing your data to life.

In this talk, Kim Rees will provide techniques used by Periscopic to cultivate data-design thinking across disciplines. She will show examples of how these techniques and processes are used within Periscopic to build skills, increase creativity, and enhance innovation.
