Intro to Data Modelling

When I was working for the Information and Data Management practice at SMS Management & Technology a few years back, I was asked to run a workshop for the Business Analysis Focus Group on data modelling. I put together an introductory presentation on data modelling targeted towards business analysts, which was a refresher on terminology and approaches. At the end of the presentation, I paired up everyone in the audience for two data modelling exercises: one person would act as a client while the other would act as a data analyst, eliciting data requirements and identifying a conceptual/logical data model. There were two scenarios so each person had an opportunity at the data analyst role, and both scenarios were based on real world projects I had previously worked on.
