    The Data Driven Intelligence Working Group & the Public Sector Service Delivery Council is excited to share the Analytics Playbook. 

    The Analytics Playbook will be an effective tool for sector organizations to get started on their analytics journey as well as advance up the maturity curve to implement more advanced tools and methodologies.

    "We have already heard the document has had an impact in helping jurisdictions advocate internally for leadership buy-in and resources to build analytics capacity. Our plan is to keep this document evergreen and incorporate leading practices and cases as the sector and environment evolves. We look forward to keeping you up to date in the future. We ask you to provide us with relevant use cases you feel would be pertinent."
