“If we have data, let's look at data. If all we have are our opinions, let's go with mine.” Why data matters in a membership organization
The title quote from Jim Barksdale (former CEO of Netscape, predecessor to Mozilla) reminds me of the value of data—especially in a membership organization as diverse as ours. ATS has 273 member schools scattered all across North America with nearly 3,500 theological faculty members and more than 3,000 full-time administrators. That’s a lot of opinions! All good opinions, I’m sure. I value opinions; they can be catalysts for wonderful conversations.
