Agility in Data Governance
When many companies approach changes to their data management strategies, they make the mistake of coming at it with a big-bang style- fixing all of its information resources in a single project plan. This approach is likely fated for failure.
Especially in unsure economic times, the most successful approach is one that is pragmatic and agile, where small, important aspects of the data management problem are carved off and solved one by one.
This paper discusses the techniques and project selection guidelines that have proven successful for ‘data champions’ as they embark on introducing agility into a data governance program. Find out how you can become a data champion by:
- Creating and promoting low-cost wins
- Honoring corporate goals regarding revenue and expense
- Picking the right projects to engage new data governance processes while tracking value
- And leveraging external successes with data governance to promote our own needs.
