Most information projects do not exceed expectations. That’s just a fact. Ones who outright fail usually do so due to non-technical issues. This class is designed to get project teams and stakeholders on the same page in regards to awareness and action regarding all of the voluminous non-technical project killers for information projects like data warehouses, analytics, big data and master data management.
This class is designed to make your project exceed expectations – make it set targets the business cares about, hit them and manage organizational acceptance from start to finish. The experienced instructor will bring clarity to questions of project and program value and making organizational change happen, based on dozens of successes, including many in the Global 2000.
Despite the apparent value of providing the data infrastructure for these initiatives, many executives question the economic feasibility of architecture. This requires information professionals to calculate and present the business value of information and information programs in terms business executives can understand.
This class provides a framework to help research, measure, and present the economic value of a proposed or existing information initiative.
Also the disparity between expecting change and managing it—the “change gap”—is growing at an unprecedented pace.
Information management professionals and business leaders must concern themselves with the organization’s acceptance of these efforts. The complexities of engaging behavioral and enterprise transformation are too often underestimated at great peril, because the “soft stuff” is truly hard. It takes real tasks, executed with the same fervor as the technical tasks.
