Transformation is hard and often painful, both for organizations AND individuals. Yet realizing the payoffs of Data-Driven Business requires transformation on a large scale, and 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 great 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 start and nurture transformative projects large and small? A motivated team can do surprisingly significant things to move the entire organization (and your own career) 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.
