Topic: Dovetailing Data Strategy with the Business Strategy: Finding a data direction with the Virginia Department of Elections

Speaker: Mike Ogilvie, Data Consultant, Data Blueprint

Session Abstract:

Uncover the secret to creating a Data Strategy by extending Business Strategy.  Find out how the Virginia Department of Elections successfully launched data initiatives when dovetailing their Business Strategy with customer data needs.

A Data Strategy provides directional and specific guidance for long-term plans and the day-to-day stream of decisions surrounding data assets. A Business Strategy provides guidance to align outcomes with the objectives and direction of the organization over time.

Considering the importance of data as the renewable, non-degradable, business asset – the Strategy surrounding tactical decisions on data management must be made in light of the overall Business Strategy. For data to be taken seriously as an asset, the Data Strategy not only needs to be given consideration within the overall Business Strategy, but the Data Strategy structure itself should be derived in the setting of the Business Strategy. The trick is…how.

Even in the absence of a defined Strategy (business, data, or otherwise), an organization still follows a strategy. It may be disjointed and poorly conveyed, but its core principles are most likely being followed, even if the organization is unaware.

In this session, find out how it was accomplished at the Virginia Department of Elections, even without a written Business Strategy. You will hear:

  • The process used to ascertain the Business Strategy despite none having been formally defined.
  • The steps for creating a set of data requirements.
  • How the strategy and requirements can be dovetailed to create the Data Strategy.
  • How the Data Strategy was used to inform decisions to incorporate data management processes and programs.

Successes the Department of Elections has achieved as a result of their new organizationally-aligned Data Strategy.
