Looking Beyond the Obvious

with James Orr


Panel Discussion on Data Governance 

with Sherri Chisarik, Mike Burgwald and  Michael Mueller 

In today’s project oriented world organizations have a tendency to focus on traditional and familiar methods for implementing information management projects. While important, success in the MDM and Data Governance space is often determined by how well organizations can recognize and navigate the trappings of conventional wisdom and tactics. Our customary training and skills are still needed, but MDM and Data Governance requires us to advance our thinking and approach.

The most fundamentally sound and successful organizations are being forced into unchartered waters when it comes to MDM and Data Governance. These challenges span technology, business process, change management, and cultural divides. Join Jim Orr, President of James Orr Consulting LLC as he sheds light on the not so obvious things that can make the difference between success and failure. 

In this session you will learn about.

  • The most obscure things you can do to help ensure MDM/DG success
  • Why the not-so-obvious is so important
  • How to move the organization outside their comfort zone and deal with the unconventional
