About This Talk

How do we implement data changes within teams, projects, organizations? Is a top-down strategy more effective than bottom-up? Is success going to be determined by to resources? Time? Tools? Skills? Training? Just as important perhaps, what would be considered a data “success”?

As agents of change, we need to be thinking about how different stakeholders “think” about data.

In this presentation we will consider the context of how different components of organizations view, interact, and are influenced by data projects. As a framework we can leverage Change Management Theory, or the processes organizations launch to improve current performance, seize new opportunities, or address key issues. We’ll examine 4 established Change Management models from the world of business consultancy, each one focused on addressing the different impact responses to an organizational change stimulus, followed by a brief application of these concepts to a hypothetical scenario, and concluding with a selection of simple, yet powerful, techniques to help drive data engagement within our teams, departments, and organizations.
