LOTI outcomes-based methodology for data projects

Why have we created it?

LOTI’s data methodology focuses on how data leads to action. It starts with real-world outcomes in mind, asking: “Who could do what differently if they had better information?” This kind of action-orientated approach can enable better conversations between senior officers, service managers and their data teams. It also helps pin down exactly which datasets are actually needed and why, making the information governance aspects of data sharing projects more achievable. It complements LOTI’s general outcomes-based project methodology.

How do you use it?

This video provides an overview of the methodology.

Who should use it?

The methodology is useful for council data teams but is also aimed at service managers and other colleagues who want to understand more about when and how data can play a role in achieving their specific outcomes.
