Engaging Stakeholders and Other Mere Mortals
Interest in Data Modelling, especially Concept Modelling (Conceptual Data Modelling) has increased dramatically in recent years. That’s great news, but our modelling can still be improved. When it’s done well, Concept Modelling is a powerful enabler of communication among different stakeholders including senior leaders, subject matter experts, business analysts, solution architects, and others. Unfortunately, the communication often gets lost – in the clouds, in the weeds, or somewhere off to the side. Sometimes the modeller has drifted too quickly into abstraction, sometimes the modeller has taken the famous “deep dive for detail,” but the outcome is the same – confusion, frustration, and detachment. The result – inaccurate, incomplete, or unappreciated models.
It doesn’t have to be this way! Drawing on over 40 years of successful modelling, this session describes core techniques, backed by practical examples, for helping people appreciate, use, and possibly even want to build data models.
