Is it time for a data audit?

Consider these simple questions.

1. What stats are you collecting and for what purpose?

2. Is time spent collecting these stats justified?

3. What stats aren’t you collecting that you should be?

4. How are you using the stats that you do collect?

Then Boroondara staff can take a squizz at my report on the L Drive:
