Competing in today’s information-driven marketplace requires data-focused strategies that enable organizations to be competent, agile and innovative. This requires data to be at the heart of your organizational business model and strategy. So you have figured out your data strategy but how do you go about putting together the roadmap and implementation plan? Utilizing various case studies and client experiences, this workshop will help turn your strategy into action.


  • Getting started – how to identify what’s important and taking the first steps
  • How to create the vision – what artifacts need to be created to layout the long-term value, to show it physically look like and communicate what it’s going to take the organization to get there
  • Identifying and addressing the cultural challenges that get in the way of a data-centric transformation – what are the steps and deliverables to change management
  • How to deliver value while building your data management capabilities – how to develop plans that meet both objectives
  • Case study example artifacts used to implement a data strategy
  • Impact of data in healthcare
  • Case studies that cover success stories of using analytics to improve cancer and palliative care
