DUG has a 3 pillar strategy designed to provide focus for our activities and to provide the highest possible value for members.
We believe it is essential that as part of its mission we provide analysts in industry with the professional and interpersonal skills to most effectively carry out their roles. To provide this skills based training we are going to develop the Data Analyst Competency Framework in conjunction with external bodies including RSS, MRS, IDM, ONS and NESTA.
We are working with external bodies to introduce members perspectives on the implications and appropriate application of the introduction of GDPR in 2018.
We are also working with the RSS to support the Commercial Strand of the RSS conference, with a view to supporting an RSS award for academic developments in commercial data science and statistics.
