Establishing Formal Data Governance


If management refers to the decisions organizations make, then governance is the way those decisions are made. This workshop looks at the Universal Data Governance Framework™ - an easy-to-learn, easy-to-explain way of organizing your efforts that establishes accountability, removes ambiguity, and reduces organizational friction. Focusing on the human aspect of Data Governance, the workshop demonstrates how to set the rules of engagement that will define how your management and staff should work together to set and align data-related rules, to resolve issues, and to provide boundary-spanning services not addressed by management teams.

Participants will learn about options for structuring a Data Governance program and which models work best in various types of organizations. They'll learn three approaches to technical aspect of governance, and how each one supports the company's compliance strategies. We'll discuss strategies for identifying stakeholders and involving them in rule-making and collecting/aligning policies, standards, and requirements. Finally, we'll . walk through a structured, politically-neutral, and auditable process for issue resolution. Participants will leave with process flows, templates for stakeholder communications, and checklists for setting up their own Data Governance programs.
