Starting a Data Governance Program

A successful Data Governance program does not begin with the design of the program!
You'll want to build the type of program that your stakeholders will be excited about. The Data Governance programs we've seen that are the most successful are ones with a clear focus, metrics that excite leadership, a value proposition that everyone can get behind, and a clear message.

Don't worry if this isn't real obvious to you. After all, we're all familiar with the concept of not being able to see the forest for the trees. What if you ARE one of the trees?

Consider getting a fresh viewpoint from someone within your organization (or from outside) who can help you describe your vision and set and approach to:
  1. Develop a value statement
  2. Prepare a roadmap
  3. Plan and fund
  4. Design
  5. Deploy
  6. Govern
  7. Monitor, measure, report.
