Strategic Consulting:
Data Governance and
Change Management

Utopia’s Strategic Consulting practice provides a holistic approach to transformative technology, focusing on the improvement of the people and processes affected. Our practice was founded on the principle that technology empowers people to succeed.

Strategic consultants possess years of experience with data management, change management, and process redesign within a wide variety of industries. Utilizing our backgrounds, we can identify areas for improvement using tried and true best practices.

Utopia’s strategic consultants have unsurpassed expertise in the implementation of a Data Governance Framework, training, knowledge transfer, and other functional consulting that supports your business transformation when applied to stakeholders and critical processes.

Strategic Change Enablement directly aligns concepts of change management to the implementation of technology. Through workshops our consultants identify areas of need to support this critical program within the organization, empowering stakeholders to accept and champion the changes to their areas.

Utopia’s Strategic Data Assessment program identifies the gaps between current state methods and future state needs through interviews and analysis. Data governance and change management concepts are key outcomes of this program, which also hits key areas of business readiness for a master data technical transformation.

Other areas of assessment within strategic consulting include the Utopia Data Health Assessment (DHA) - a quantitative approach to identifying current state data quality issues, and Change Enablement Health Checks, which provide an expert view of your organizational readiness for enterprise technology transformations.
