Updated: Mar 8, 2022

The Game Is ON!

THRIVE is in the pursuit of educating over 25% of the industry on the fundamentals of achieving success with their data!

We all know that data is a game-changer for the credit union industry. The challenge is the ability to harness and leverage this robust asset.

The fastest and quickest way to overcome this challenge is to build a data capability, not purchase technology, but build a skill set within existing credit union talent.

Perhaps this sounds like a bit of a pipedream, but it's not. The 7-Class Data Education Series was designed to meet the needs of a busy credit union leader by integrating dynamic online classes, assignments that can be immediately used in the workplace, an online knowledge platform that hosts class details, assignments, and the ability for students to chat with each other and the instructor. Students receive 7 CPE credits upon completion.

The class curriculum develops data confidence, capability, and proficiency in the following educational domains.

  • Enterprise data vision

  • Member-centered data use case

  • Understanding/defining data maturity

  • Essentials of data governance

  • Creative data consumption by enterprise talent

  • Workplace adoption

  • Building data road maps

Why is THRIVE making this a goal? Well.. honestly it's best explained in the video. Click the image to watch.
