Leveraging Your Influence for Data Management Success (Keynote)

Presentation Summary

From Culture Change to Data Transformation, Decision Making, Data Governance (and other topics) there are ample opportunities at the conference to learn strategies and techniques that you can take back to your organizations. Yet incorporating new ideas into existing processes is difficult and often painful, both for organizations AND individuals. Realizing the payoffs of data-driven organizations requires transformation, often against the headwinds of inertia, apathy and lack of understanding.

Whether it is your job to manage this change, or contribute to a key project, your expertise in data management makes you one of the people with the best understanding of the tools and objectives of change. You are in a unique position to influence your projects in a positive way, and help others deal with the adaptations they need to make.

What will your contribution be? What strategies can you use to initiate and nurture transformative projects large and small? How can you leverage what you learn at the conference to make a difference in your organization? Influential individuals and teams can do surprisingly significant things to move the entire organization (and your own careers) along the right path. Maureen Clarry will share practical lessons and tactics that everyone can use to get going, keep on-track and demonstrate success.
