In the past ten years of industry experience specific to data warehousing projects, the researcher has witnessed more failures than successes in the implementation process. Although many enterprises have been successful in implementing data warehouse projects, the rate of failure is exacerbated in the financial services industry. As a result, building new data warehousing projects in financial institutions warrants a new look at how this process is managed. Instead of focusing on the technical design of data warehousing projects, the researcher focused on key variables that will guarantee intended results. A new model was developed as a result of this study targeted at solving specific problems in implementing planned organizational change.
