Data-governance programs focus on authority and accountability for the management of data as a valued organizational asset. Data Governance should not be about command-andcontrol, yet at times could become invasive or threatening to the work, people and culture of an organization.
‘Non-Invasive Data Governance’ focuses on formalizing existing accountability for the management of data and improving formal communications, protection, and quality efforts through effective stewarding of data resources. Non-Invasive Data Governance will provide you with a complete set of tools to help you deliver a successful data governance program.
– Steward responsibilities can be identified and recognized, formalized, and engaged according to their existing responsibility rather than being assigned or handed to people as more work.
– Governance of information can be applied to existing policies, standard operating procedures, practices, and methodologies, rather than being introduced or emphasized as new processes or methods.
– Governance of information can support all data integration, risk management, business intelligence and master data management activities rather than imposing inconsistent rigor to these initiatives.
– A practical and non-threatening approach can be applied to governing information and promoting stewardship of data as a cross-organization asset.
– Best practices and key concepts of this non-threatening approach can be communicated effectively to leverage strengths and address opportunities to improve.
