The industry has progressed so much that there is a general consensus that information is an asset and should be managed and governed as such. This belief is reinforced through government regulation and the negative press that rains down on companies whose data is jeopardized. So why is it still so hard to implement a data program and maintain the activity level beyond the kick-off?

Because change is hard, and any data program means change. In this session, we will discuss the areas of an information management program that create the most change in an organization and walk through a practical approach to managing change throughout the data journey. We will review how to ensure accountability for data and data processes and how to monitor the change and adoption over time.

Attendees will leave understanding:

  • The basics of culture change
  • Specific issues of change with data efforts
  • How to create a change management business case
  • How to build a change plan
  • The importance of a sustainable change team
  • How to measure adoption and promote accountability across the organization

Having worked with the software and systems providers key to the formulation of Master Data Management (MDM), Kelle O'Neal has played important roles in many of the groundbreaking initiatives that confirm the value of MDM to the enterprise. Recognizing an unmet need for clear guidance on the intricacies of implementing data solutions, she founded First San Francisco Partners. Under her leadership, FSFP immediately established a reputation as the first-call resource for companies looking to tap the value of Enterprise Information Management (EIM), MDM, and Data Governance (DG).

Kelle developed her ability to work through organizational complexity, build consensus, and drive results in senior roles at companies such as Siperian, GoldenGate Software, Siebel Systems, and Oracle. Kelle's strong background enables her to provide expert counsel to organizations seeking to execute an EIM, MDM, or DG project. Kelle holds degrees from Duke University and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
