about the pafow community

Connect, interact, share, and explore with people in your local community, as well as stay up to date on regional, national, and global events. The amount you interact and engage is up to you. It's absolutely free. You can, however, access proprietary content such as templates, job aides, frameworks - as well as receive conference and bootcamp discounts - with a Premium membership. The choice is yours. In the end, PAFOW's mission is to serve as a central connection point to learn about vendors, innovations, leading practices, press releases, events, and anything else going on in the ever-expanding world of People Analytics.

Who’ll benefit from the Academy? Anyone interested in how people data and analytics will affect the future of work, from how it’ll change talent strategy formulation, measure, and management to how it’ll affect organizational culture — specifically individual, team, and organizational behavior. The Academy starts on Wednesday, the 22nd, at 3:00pm, and will run through Friday at 3:00pm. To be fair to everyone, participants must attend the full program. Academy content will build on itself and there will be pre-work and sharing, thus continuous participation will not only benefit you, the participant, it will benefit your fellow cohort members as well.

The Academy is what we call an education/consulting hybrid. Yes, you will learn about concepts, models, and use cases, yet you will also create deliverables specific to your company. The high flow of the 2.5 days is as follows:

  • The Current & Future States of Organizations, Talent Strategy, & People Analytics

  • Useful Models and Leading Practices

  • Engaging in the Audit, Vision, & Roadmap (AVR) Process for your Organization

  • Use Cases and Cautionary Tales

  • Prioritization: What Stories Need to be Told? For Who? And for the Sake of What?

  • Beginning with the End in Mind: Change-Making Communications with Data & Story-telling

  • Appropriate Strategies Given the Pervasive Nature of Data & Analytics in HR and beyond

  • Flexing the Muscle: Practicing YOUR Role in the Data-to-Change Process

  • Putting Together the Organizational Roadmap as well as the Personal Development Plan

In the end, participants will walk away with a personal development plan, an organizational roadmap to imbed data-based decision-making, and a set of experiences that will take concepts out of the theoretical realm and into day-to-day actionable reality.
