Big Data and Big Change Management: A Path Forward | MIT Sloan Management Review

Big Data and Big Change Management: A Path Forward | MIT Sloan Management Review | Management Strategy and Model Innovation | Scoop.it
Organizations that deal with big data analytics often grapple with change management.

 

Excerpt...

 

But in all the classroom discussions that surfaced around the big issues from big data — privacy, security, costs, infrastructure, data volume, data quality, and data governance — the reality that many organizations grapple with is change management: whether or not they can manage the human and process changes necessary to make the most of their analytics initiatives.

 

Bottom line: the real question is whether or not they can change the culture of their organization.

 

Consider the experience of one course participant, who talked about how her organization, a software company with 100 million customers, is struggling to implement a new analytics program that will enable both multi-channel customer communications and upselling. To achieve these goals, the company needs to change the way it handles sales data (replace batch processing of sales information with real time processing) and communicates with customers (replace blanket email communications with more personalized, one-on-one communications).

 

For this problem, the researchers offered two approaches: Pentland talked about how to get people to do what you want them to do, while Brynjolfsson provided a model to evaluate the process end of change management.

 

To get people to do what you want them to do — in essense, to get buy-in on analytics — Pentland talked about creating a model that combines the intuitive thinking employed by HiPPOs (highest-paid person’s opinions) with quantitative reasoning from “the quants.” Bringing the two together enables organizations to explore data, visualize relationships and understand in a human, intuitive way what data is telling them.

Fascinating article, and revealing. We have always assumed that people would accept the increased benefits derived from an organization from Big Data: in retrospect, how naive. It's as if it needs to be mandated by senior management (not optional) so as to drive the initiative(s) through the organization.

Improving operations through the use of performance indicators requires the buy in of the people clinging to the status quo.

Michaela Williams's insight:
Spurred by Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen's quote "“motivation is the catalysing ingredient for every successful innovation”, Bhagat reflects on the motivations of modern CIOs, and how the role is increasingly calling for modern CIOs to embrace innovation. 

He brings to light how there is an increased need to innovate the organisation, processes and people to maintain our organisations as leaders in their industries and ensure their relevance going forward.

 

A brief, but interesting read which draws similarities with the ideas put forward by business thinkers such as Clayton Christensen and Gary Hamel regarding innovation and the importance of the people within our companies in driving it.

There's nothing new or revolutionary here but it's a great reminder of the basic blocking and tackling of managing change that is a continued struggle for many. We like the razzle dazzle and trick plays but sustainable change requires simplicity, consistency, and persistence.

Engagement is core to change and transition - some useful tips here.

greytip's curator insight, October 24, 2013 3:16 AM

With changing times, it is important to adapt new technologies that aligned towards employee engagement. Having an employee portal is one of them. The employee can easily access his data as payslips, leave or claim entitlements, apply for them etc.  http://www.greytip.in/cloud/employee-self-service-portal

Inside GitHub's Super-Lean Management Strategy--And How It Drives Innovation | Management Strategy and Model Innovation | Scoop.it

This is a story about how to run a company, but more specifically, how to run a company that embraces open-source culture--and how the seemingly counter-intuitive principles behind open-source culture seem to be good for GitHub, which is growing quickly, and also apparently just good for its product. And its marketing. And its hiring strategy. And its culture.

Michaela Williams's insight:

"For the first time in a position to consider absorbing the concept of disruptive innovation on a scientific basis and for this to be applied in a systemic way."


Alex Chenevier extends on the Clayton Christensen principles and looks back at the historical impact of innovation in terms of the revolutionary changes in economic systems and how a number of combined influences including political, geographic and cultural factors, drove the emergence and evolution of global enterprises and organisations. 

 

The article also looks forward to how disruptive forces on the horizon may lead to a "more tacit-centric global consensus based on actual disruptive sequences of high ROI - usually obtainable from technology driven innovative breakthroughs". 

 

An interesting read
