Data governance continues to expand in its importance, value and scope within most organizations today. A key question we hear from stakeholders in many enterprises is:

How can we get started in an effective and sustainable way?

Use of data is ubiquitous across all functions of an enterprise. Thus, data governance has a broad scope, potentially impacting many stakeholders and processes. The wide-reaching scope of data governance makes it complex to plan and implement.

In this webinar:

We present an alternative approach that is benefit focused and combines design of the governance framework with implementing it in an iterative and adaptive way.  In the presentation, we cover key topics including:

  • Typical business drivers that motivate doing data governance
  • Picking a driver that will motivate and help to focus getting started
  • How to blend just enough design with executing and evolving your data governance approach
  • Showing value and success from data governance to give it momentum
  • Understanding that sustainable data governance above all requires interconnectedness – achievable through integration of top-down and bottom-up processes and results
