Beyond Acronyms: Humanizing big data and information governance through mindful storytelling

By Fouad Bendris

Six tips for effective data storytelling, as learned from work being done at the Navy.

1. Speak the same language

2. Tell the story, then show the pictures

3. Develop your characters

4. Show “What-If?”

5. Document commonalities and differences

6. Continuously improve

Fouad Bendris’s insight:
being responsible for complex, mission-critical initiatives such as enterprise architecture, software licensing, information assurance, data and help desk consolidation, and compliance, to name a few – means there is a lot of data to be dealt with. But, just like with any organization, IT must tell impactful stories that convey why an initiative must be undertaken and how it affects the end-user.
