The Definition of Alignment: understanding a concept from the perspective of others, or working individually towards a common goal. One of the biggest challenges in a data management initiative is aligning different and sometimes competing organizations to work towards the same long-term vision. It is very difficult to execute a data management program all at once, or as a “big bang”
approach. Rather, the program should be deployed in phases over time, starting in one area and incrementally building out and adding value to the rest of the organization over time.

With a phased deployment or rollout, inevitably one group sees value in advance of others. Getting those groups who are impacted later in the deployment to get on board
and stay on board is a challenge. In order for these groups to stay on board, each individual needs to go through an internalization process to accept the precedence that has been established by people or groups at the beginning of the enterprise deployment.
