The first step: helping Barnardo’s develop a data culture
Barnardo’s knows that the process to becoming data driven was a transformational one and couldn’t be taken lightly. In early 2022, Barnardo's approached Amplifi to help build a data strategy that they could execute over time.
During a series of workshops over a six-week period, Amplifi were able to interview key stakeholders from across the charity and understand the challenges and opportunities that exist when it comes to data at Barnardo’s. What followed was documenting over 100 valuable findings and over 20 strategic recommendations that would help Barnardo’s achieve their objectives.
“Because of the complexity of requests and using different systems, getting real value from our data was becoming an overwhelming task” said Remi Martins-Tonks, Head of Data & Insight at Barnardo's. “With Amplifi’s support we have been able to identify the foundational steps we need to take to make sure we’re using our data to its full potential.”
What’s next on Barnardo's journey with data?
The foundation of Barnardo’s transition to becoming truly data driven is investing in their people and the role they play in embracing the value of data. That’s why Barnardo’s next step is to undertake a business change programme across their entire organisation to ensure their people know and understand the value of data.
After that, they can move on to address other key areas Amplifi identified such as data governance, data ownership and system architecture.
We’re excited and proud to be part of that journey with Barnardo’s as they continue to help and support children, young people and families throughout the UK.
