Level:  Advanced

Ultimately, data governance should be integral to your company’s operating model. Achieving this level of a maturity requires a fundamental, philosophical shift in an organization’s approach to the care and feeding of data. One that traditional assessment and change management approaches struggle to achieve. Particularly in the face of ever evolving business priorities and technical capabilities.

This session will explore how tried and true social science practices and emerging research on influencing change can be applied to the practice of data governance.

Whether your governance program is nascent or mature, learn how a resource-based approach to change management can take your program to the next level. And why focusing on the positive really is the best option.

Join us to learn:

  • Why traditional assessment and improvement tactics fail
  • The difference between a resource and deficit based approach
  • How to identify and exploit organizational strengths
  • Proven techniques for influencing change
