and the vast majority of people in data governance and data quality know that
the most critical aspect of these programs is how we deal with the human side.
So why not invest in a deeper understanding of the human behavioral side and
the tools, techniques, and approaches that work and know where the pitfalls are
and how to deal with them?
Our experience has shown that there are human behavior scenarios and factors
that are specific to data governance and data quality programs and in order to
succeed, we must have tools, techniques, and proven approaches for the
behavioral, cultural, and human aspects that will inevitably arise.
day course provides a comprehensive toolkit, techniques, approaches and case
studies for effectively managing the human side of data governance and data
quality. The course will cover the major human factors within each of the major
areas of data governance and data quality program, namely within setting up the
program, establishing roles, gathering needs, defining data and rules, managing
issues, setting up policies and procedures, and defining solutions. Within this
context, the course will share how to:
a really clear, compelling, and common vision for data governance
the trust of people involved
communicate including communications plans and execution
true involvement and commitment
For all the above aspects of human behavior skills and
tools, there will be practical case studies sharing what has worked and not
worked, there will be fun and interactive exercises where participants can
practice scenarios that commonly arise in data governance and apply the techniques,
tools, and principles learned in this class.
