          Len Silverston, Navigating Culture and Politics in Data Management: Organizational Change Management for Data

 

The key to successful enterprise wide data management is in skillfully applying human behavioral and organization change management skills.

While technical skills are important, there are many studies that show that human factors skills are far more important in achieving success.Then why don’t we invest more into this? Perhaps because we feel that we know it already. Yet, in our industry, we continue to have many suboptimal data science, data warehouse/lake, MDM, big data, data governance, and other enterprise wide data management efforts. This unique seminar will share critical organizational change management tools, techniques, case studies and exercises, as they apply to data management. Best-selling data modeling author Len Silverston will share case studies of what has worked and what has not worked in his experiences in both 35 years of data management consulting as well as 25 years of studies in human behavior. The seminar will begin by sharing some brief and practical meditative and awareness practices that are useful for having the most productive seminar and can also be used in our data programs for more successful results.

You will learn:

  • Case studies of successful and unsuccessful enterprise wide data management efforts and why they failed or succeeded
  • Organizational change principles helping to understand motivations, purpose, trust communications, conflict management, how to get involvement and leadership  to effectively navigate through cultural and politics. 
  • Keys to better understanding and navigating politics and culture
  • How to practically apply these tools via Interactive, fun and insightful exercises
  • Very practical approaches and tools that have been proven to work
  • How to ground oneself using meditative, awareness practices, which is a key discipline in effective human interactions
