Tom Redman

Thomas C. Redman (aka the "Data Doc") is founder and President of Navesink Consulting Group. As an innovator, advisor, and teacher, Dr. Redman was among the first to extend quality principles to data and information. He has crystallized a body of tools, techniques, roadmaps, and organizational mechanisms to help organizations make big sustained improvements. More recently, Dr. Redman has developed keen insights into the nature of data, formulating the first comprehensive approach to "putting data to work." Taken together, these innovative solutions enable organizations to treat data as assets of virtually unlimited potential.

Dr. Redman has helped dozens of leaders and organizations better understand data, including the importance of high-quality data, and has assisted them in starting their own data programs. He is a sought-after lecturer and author of dozens of papers and four books. His most recent, Data Driven: Profiting from Your Most Important Business Asset, was awarded a Library Journal "Best Buy." Prior to forming Navesink, Dr. Redman established the Data Quality Lab at AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1987 and led it until 1995. He holds a PhD in statistics and holds two patents. He can be reached at
