To extract greater value for stakeholders, taxpayers and the whole of the UK, data must be used better. The volume and type of data is rapidly increasing, and there are many questions that data can help answer. However, in many teams, only a few people have the skills and knowledge to handle data, meaning it can become ‘exclusive’.

Howard identified this issue and created an innovative solution called VIKTORR - an easy to use tool for all ORR staff to interpret our 10,000 different sets of data. He did this over and above his day job and his key insight was that any solution had to be accessible and inclusive, and keep people at its centre.
