Description

Putting Data First - Why Johnny can’t data and what we need to do about it.

Organisations are repeatedly frustrated when attempting to do more with their data. They are often not even certain what this means or how to do it. They repeatedly spend too much, take too long, and deliver far less than planned as they look to data to resolve strategic issues or create innovative services.

This 2-day workshop begins by uncovering the root causes of why Johnny and most organisations can’t leverage data better. We focus firstly on the inherent architectural and engineering the foundations that are almost totally lacking in formal university programs and training curricula.

The remaining sessions explore the requisite leadership criteria for success, how to express these in a form that management will develop a data strategy, and monetize data management to make it relevant to management.

On completion, you will be able to prepare your organisation to use better data in achieving its objectives.

Day 1

As-is: Cause for concern

  • Disclaimer/Bad data decisions spiral
  • Data Management practices hierarchy structure

  • Implementation of data-centric thinking

Day 2

Data Strategy: A focus on the ‘Why.’

  • Data management practices hierarchy and foundational elements
  • A data strategy is necessary for effective data governance
  • Effective data strategy prerequisites
  • Data strategy development phase II–iterations

Valuing Data and Data Activities/Numerous examples

  • Big data technologies demystified
  • Leveraging data management
  • Monetary cases
  • Non-monetary cases

Who Should Attend:

  1. C-Level Executives who are looking for new strategies for transforming their organisations into one that value and manages data as a strategic asset.
  2. Managers from business areas with concerns about the lack of value they are getting from their data.
  3. Technical managers looking beyond the technology quagmire and rally resources to realise the real value of data.
  4. Educators who recognise the need for an educational foundation to begin changing how we value and manage data in today’s digital economy.
