The Human Side of Data Integration

Over the years, our human dynamics workshops have been extremely well-received by businesses throughout the United States and around the world. Our one-day workshop has been proven to make a big difference in more effectively integrating data as well as people! This workshop focuses on key principles, techniques and tools that are critical in this type of enterprise data management effort. The human dynamics involved in data management can lead to issues that are extremely costly, and knowing what to do in advance can be the difference between success and failure. Investing in a single-day workshop on human dynamics will help prevent issues before they arise, and result in long-term payoffs. Some of the material include: looking at very common enterprise data management scenarios that are likely to occur and then applying key principles and tools that involve understanding the various motivations, how to establish clear enterprise-wide vision regarding data, how to handle data sharing issues involving different types of trust that block data sharing, and how to handle conflicts among data professionals (such as modelers fighting over the “right” answer).
