18 EDD: How to Serve Different Types of Users Five user mindsets that our research suggests users approach our data with: –Advisor and Decision Maker (Use Me) –Researcher (Scoop Me) –Report Compiler (Report Me) –Model Feeder (Consume Me) –Storyteller (Show Me)

19 EDD: How to Find the Data Show MeFind Me Scoop MeReport MeConsume Me Storyteller Advisor and Decision Maker ResearcherReport CompilerModel Feeder Use Me Find Me Lite Data Entrance (IMF.org, e-Library, e-Bookstore) From other pages and sites
