Podcast 119 - How can data transform your L&D function?
This week, we're discussing what that looks like in practice. Sky's Derek Mitchell joins Owen Ferguson and Ross Garner to discuss how we can collect and visualise data so that it can help us shape our learning engagements.

If you were intrigued by the use of the term 'Luddite', the BBC has an excellent article explaining the origin of the term. It explains that the Luddites were not anti-technology, but were anti-wage-cuts, which could be a useful lesson for those of us embracing automation at work. The article is available here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17770171

The book that Owen recommended was: Creative Selection: Inside Apple's Design Process by Ken Kocienda, available at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Creative-Selection-Inside-Apples-Process-ebook/dp/B07F18HYX3

Ross recommended Adam Kay'sThis Is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor, available at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/This-Going-Hurt-Secret-Diaries-ebook/dp/B06XWDJRGS
