What Works Series: A Modern Approach to Data Governance: How to Deliver Value Fast

October 27, 2023

Watch the Webinar

Has your data governance program failed to gain traction? Is it struggling to deliver value? Do business people shy away from data governance meetings and responsibilities? If so, don't worry: many data governance initiatives fail to deliver real value. They are generally poorly organized, lack focus, and are perceived as extra work by employees.

This session will introduce a new approach to data governance we call governance by design. This methodology bakes governance tasks into the project plan of a strategic initiative. This has many advantages: data governance becomes part of the normal workflow,  not an external program to manage; users see an immediate impact and don't question the value of data governance; and approach generates better data and a culture of governance. This session will describe data governance by design and provide tips on how to apply the methodology.
