Thought leader Anne Buff to offer perspective on managing data governance programs

CARY, N.C. -- SAS, the leader in business analytics, today announced that Anne Buff will examine methods for managing diverse personalities and provide a model for understanding individual differences of team members at this week's 2012 Data Governance and Information Quality (DGIQ) Conference, taking place June 25-28 in San Diego, Calif. Buff's presentation entitled, "Can't We All Just Get Along? Leveraging Strengths on the Data Governance Team," is scheduled for Monday, June 25.

Who: Anne Buff, thought leader, inSight - A SAS Learning Network

What: Whether you have been tasked with developing a data governance program or are managing a well-defined data governance team, the one constant across all maturity levels of data governance is 'people.' And of course, all of these people come to the table with distinct skills, abilities and personalities. While everyone's goal is to successfully manage your organization's data, how can you successfully manage those who manage the data?

Leveraging assessment data that has been measured for almost 50 years, this session will identify the four dichotomies of personality identified by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and will map the strengths and challenges of each to the needs of data governance programs. During the session, attendees will discover:

* A model for understanding individual differences of team members

* Methods for managing diverse personalities

* Ways to leverage key personality strengths to advance data governance initiatives/goals

* Challenges that appear when specific team members work together and proactive management of such challenges

* What to provide data governance team members for individual and team success

When: Buff's presentation will take place on Monday, June 25 from 5:00-5:50 p.m.

Where: Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, San Diego, Calif.
