Organizations generally believe that information is an asset and should be managed and governed as such. This belief is reinforced through government regulation and the negative press that rains down on companies whose data is compromised. So why is it still so hard to implement a data governance program and maintain the activity level beyond the kick-off?
Because change is hard – and governance means change. In this session, we will discuss the areas of governance that create the most change in an organization and walk through a practical approach to managing that change throughout the data governance journey. We will review how to ensure accountability for data and data processes, and how to monitor the change and adoption over time. Attendees will leave understanding:
- The basics of culture change: Culture scorecards, Types of change processes
- Specific issues of change with Data Governance efforts: Navigating across corporate silos
- How to create the business case to invest in change: Getting to hard dollars
- How to build a change plan: Aligning a plan with business culture and being pragmatic
- The importance of a sustainable change team: Who participates? What is their accountability?
- How to measure adoption and promote accountability across the organization
