Joe McFadden, CSM, PMP, CISM -- Agile Data Management

Confused about how to ensure data management activities get accomplished as you organizations transitions from a traditional software development and management methodologies to agile ones?   This presentation explains the key differences in integration points between traditional and agile processes, provides tactical approaches to inserting data governance work into the agile flow.  It provides an overview of agile organizational structures, enabling you to ensure they account for data governance roles performed in your organization.

Tami Flowers - Implementing Agile Data Governance

Agile and Data Governance seem like they are worlds apart, but implementing data governance in an Agile framework can be very successful. Undergoing a Data Governance initiative can be a daunting feat. Bringing together data, information, reporting, reconciliations, controls and stewardship into a platform to provide “one version of the truth” for an organization is not a small, or quick task. Agile principles align very well with the keys to success for Data Governance. Using Agile methodology for Data Governance focuses on deliverables that are valuable to the business and continuously introduced into the organization. These are delivered through close collaboration of motivated individuals. Through continuous improvements to the Data Governance process, an organization can remain flexible, compliant, and responsive; and end up with an integrated data governance program that enables the delivery of accurate and timely information for operational or financial disclosure needs.

Eileen Jason, Ph.D., MBA, PMP, GC-C - Communicating Effectively in the Agile Environment

Communication plays an enormous part in successful agile implementation. How important is it to effectively communicate when implementing agile methodologies? How does one avoid conflicts when working with the agile methodology? To understand the answers to those questions, it is important to become more self-aware of individual actions, the actions of others and how those interactions affect the agile development environment.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) helps us understand those actions. The core of high EI is self-awareness: if you don't understand your motivations and behaviors, it's nearly impossible to develop an understanding of others. A lack of self-awareness can also thwart your ability to think rationally and apply technical capabilities.
