Level:  Business/Strategic

For Data Governance initiatives, four key things are essential for sustainable adoption:
  • Quality definitions/standards/rules (‘music’)
  • Technology/tools (‘stage/lights’)
  • Roles/responsibilities (‘costumes’)
  • People fulfilling the roles (‘dance’)
We often assume people will be willing and able to perform their new roles based on a great design. (“If you build it, they will come!”) This presentation will focus on how to teach folks to ‘dance’ -- in other words, how to implement sustainable adoption by getting people ready for transformational changes and by equipping and motivating them to work in new ways. Supporting activities to be discussed will include:
  • Audience Analysis – to ensure people issues/needs are understood and addressed
  • Enhanced Communication – to foster ongoing dialog via trusted leaders
  • Role Clarity –to sustain performance and establish accountability
  • Change Agent Network – to support awareness, coaching, and ongoing adoption
