Conference Day Two - 4th May 2017

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Tailoring the role of CDO to your business needs

Tony Gosling, Chief Data Officer, Defence Infrastructure Organisation, Ministry of Defence
The role of Chief Data Officer is a bespoke and agile role that cannot succeed without being tailored to the individual needs of your business. Failing to set clear goals from the outset which correspond directly to business needs is one of the reasons CDOs rarely remain in their position longer than 24 months. This workshop will take you through the step-by-step process of identifying your key objectives as data executive and help you set out a strategy to achieve them. Learn how to:
  • Develop and define the CDO role to fit your unique cultural and organisational objectives
  • Adapt to changing priorities as your organisational capabilities mature
  • Understand which of the numerous ‘hats of the Chief Data Officer’ to wear at any one time
  • Think about reporting structure: Who should I report into and who should I hire to ensure success?

Tony Gosling, Chief Data Officer, Defence Infrastructure Organisation, Ministry of Defence
Tony Gosling is the Director of Data, Analytics & Insight in the Ministry of Defence, Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). The first 2* level Chief Data Officer in the MOD, responsible for building a new function within the DIO to exploit data strategically. The aim is to deliver a more efficient and effective estate and services that support the military as they live, work and train and getting best value from the DIO’s £3.5bn of annual spending. In his eighteen months so far in post, he and his team have dramatically improved the management and exploitation of data and information including reporting, business intelligence, analysis capabilities and the way that data and information is used in decision making. Before this role Tony spent 15 years as a consultant and interim manager (most recently with PA Consulting) delivering project turnarounds and major outsourcing deals, and before that ran an IT services company.
