Adopting new data governance and management processes might be a big transition for your staff. Getting buy-in at all levels of government will be critical to success. The field of change management is concerned with helping individuals, teams, and organizations adopt new ways of doing things.
Building value for data into the culture of your government is key to implementing new processes. Staff need to understand the relevance of data to self-determination and taking charge of community well-being. Refer to First Steps: Visioning and Mapping a Path Forward for information about building a data vision.
Several tools and documents are in development that will help your government get buy-in, and help staff adopt new ways of doing things.
