Would you love if data requirements were actually built INTO solutions, and not an afterthought? Or have you done the hard work to structure and organize the data so it's powerful but can’t get the organization to use it?

Let’s talk about data requirements in terms your stakeholders actually buy into. Learn different methods for eliciting, presenting, communicating, and using data requirements that drive valuable (i.e., quantifiable!) business results applicable to both traditional and agile environments.


  • Articulating the challenge of changing perceptions

           Framework for defining change 

  • How to communicate data’s value!

           Eliciting approaches

           Modeling techniques


  • Getting people to understand how awesome data is!

            Measure the value of data 

  • What traps to avoid!

            Pitfalls of data requirements

Let’s have some fun (yes, come prepared to have fun!!) with hands-on practice of defining, demonstrating, and proving the value of data programs and structures in our ever-changing organizations today!
