Common Questions

What is the process to assess my organisations open data maturity?

The engagement follows a five step process and typically spans a six-week period. A half-day workshop determines your maturity level. We use this information to populate your scores into the Open Data Pathway and create an Open Data Maturity Assessment report. Two half-day workshops set your 12 month maturity targets and determine the actions you’ll take to achieve them – this is documented in an Open Data Action Plan. Finally we present the results to key stakeholders to gain support for implementing the actions.

How many people can attend the workshop?

Workshops are run for up to 8 participants. Participants should have an operational or management role in the publishing or consumption of open data.
Attendance to the stakeholder presentation is unlimited.

What Questions are asked?

Up to 83 questions are asked. They span 15 activity areas that are grouped into 5 themes.
