About the Webinar
While wrath and envy are best left for human resources to address, overcoming the numerous obstacles that often inhibit successful data management must be a full organizational effort. The difficulty of implementing a new data strategy often goes underappreciated, particularly the multi-faceted nature of the challenges that need to be met. Deficiencies in organizational readiness and core competence represent clearly visible problems faced by data managers, but beyond that there are several cultural and structural barriers common to virtually all organizations that must be eliminated in order to facilitate effective management of data.
In this webinar, we will discuss these barriers—the titular “Seven Deadly Data Sins”, and in the process will also:
- Elaborate upon the three critical factors that lead to strategy failure
- Demonstrate a two-stage data strategy implementation process
- Explore the sources and rationales behind the “Seven Deadly Data Sins”, and recommend solutions and alternative approaches
