The Recovery Opportunity: A Journey into Insight
At Barnet, we recognised we needed to work differently to be “fit for the future” and provide the best outcomes for our residents. In our session, we will talk about our journey of embedding insight to support decision-making, amid a pandemic and recovery from it. This includes sharing how we are working in an agile way, using iterative sprints and a “start-up mentality” to embed a culture that promotes and uses insight and data to support decision making across the council. Alongside sharing reflections on the impacts we’ve made and the lessons learnt in pursuit of our aim, we will be spotlighting one of our insight and research led projects with the London Office of Technology and Innovation (LOTI): Mapping Digital Exclusion in London – a cross-borough collaboration with Barnet, Southwark, Brent, Westminster City Council, Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and LOTI to map and understand the softer facets of digital exclusion in London.

Driving Data and Analytics Forward at Richmond and Wandsworth Councils
In July 2021, Richmond and Wandsworth Councils published a dedicated Data & Analytics Strategy, becoming one of the first local authorities to do so. During this session we will present our strategy, practical examples of how it is being implemented, and the impact that putting data at the heart of everything we do is making across the organisation – from designing and delivering quality services to our residents, supporting evidence-based decision-making, and implementing smarter, more efficient ways of working. Alongside this we will share how we have utilised advanced analytics to support the Councils’ green ambitions.
Anna Humpleby, Data Projects Officer and Emily Heades, Intelligence Analyst, Richmond and Wandsworth Councils
