“What don’t you get? Talk to me!”
Missy Wittmann, American Family
A data model contains a LOT of information, this can be overwhelming and seem complex for those that really need to understand and validate it. At the end of the day, communication is key. How are models being presented? Are they being walked thru in a language that all participants can understand? How well do we understand our audience? Are we unconsciously leaving people out? Let’s take some of the complexity out and make it easier for people to understand our data models and the information they contain.
