Organizations define Data Governance program success in different ways.  For one organization success will be determined by the number of data quality issues resolved or the improvements in quality of data.  For another, success will be measured in the ability of the organization to comply with rules and regulations, whether those rules are defined internally or externally.  For another, success will be determined by the ability to provide analytics that drive business decisions, or by the ability to manage data development and integration projects smoothly.  This list can go on and on.


Before an organization can claim Data Governance success, it is necessary for the Data Governance Team (those people responsible for the program) to level set with the business participants and sponsors and define effective expectations.  These expectations should be expanded beyond traditional business value to include what "governing data" means to the organization and the effort that will be required to achieve that business value.  Setting and communicating business expectations, and delivering on those expectations, will provide an avenue to deliver success in governing data.


Join Bob Seiner and DATAVERSITY for the sixth in a series of Data Governance webinars titled "Real World Data Governance" where Bob will discuss how to level-set business expectations in the real-world with the approach and capabilities of your Data Governance program.
