Kathy Spaulding

Senior Data Management Consultant

Kathy brings almost 20 years of experience in developing and executing business and operational strategies across finance, analytics, and healthcare organizations.  She brings expertise in agile, project management, lean/Toyota process improvement, and change management techniques.  Her background is in internal and external management consulting.  After starting as a management consultant at Deloitte for Fortune 1000 clients, she honed her expertise, managing the analytic strategy at Partners HealthCare System, an 80,000-employee integrated healthcare delivery network in Boston, MA.  There, she led the development of an advanced analytics data warehouse for finance, analytics, and planning - becoming the Director of Business Intelligence and reporting to the Chief Strategic Officer.  

In 2013, Kathy became a GE-certified Master Change Agent for the organization.  In this role, she was responsible for guiding strategic innovation initiatives for executive leadership in support of Partners 2.0, a multi-year, system-wide initiative to optimize efficiency across Partners.   While her projects spanned multiple corporate divisions, they all involved two unifying themes: leveraging data to enhance the clinical, research, and educational mission of the organization, and, most importantly, helping people to lead the change and make it stick.

 She is thrilled to be at Data Blueprint and be able to support clients and drive projects that involve the people-side of change and leverage data as a competitive asset.
