And They All Lived Happily Ever After- Fairy Tales, Parables and Data

Presented by

Katherine O'Keefe

About this talk

Once upon a time, data, information, values, and lessons were all communicated by spoken word. Narrative was used to encode and shape data, quality control the transmission of the message, and keep the story alive. That's the simple version. Dr Katherine O'Keefe is an expert in the use of fairy tales and the narrative patterns of folklore in literature. She uses these skills to help data governance clients figure out why their data-driven happy ending hasn't happened yet. What you will learn: The links between fairy tales and data management taxonomies The differences between fairy tales and parables and the narrative patterns that drive good yarns The link between stories, communication, and change management How to reinterpret classic narratives to teach valuable data governance lessons.
