Many organizations view governance of their information assets as being over-and-above normal work efforts and threatening to the existing work culture of the organization. Many organizations have a difficult time getting people to adopt governance best practices because of a common belief that governance is about command-and-control. It does not have to be that way.
“Non-Invasive Data Governance”, the approach taught and implemented by Robert S. Seiner of KIK Consulting & TDAN.com, focuses on formalizing existing accountability for the management of data and information, and improving formal communications, value and quality efforts through effective cross-organization stewarding of information resources.
Participate in this first of a kind webcast and you will learn how to focus your governance approach on leveraging the strengths that already exists in your organization and addressing opportunities to improve. Non-Invasive Data Governance will be discussed in the terms of a few quick statements.
With Non-Invasive Data Governance:
• Steward responsibilities are identified and recognized, formalized and engaged according to their existing responsibility rather than being assigned or handed to people as more work.
• Governance is applied to existing policies, standard operating procedures, practices, and methodologies … rather than being introduced or emphasized as new processes or methods.
• Governing data augments and supports all data integration, risk management, business intelligence and master data management activities rather than imposing inconsistent rigor to these initiatives.
• Specific attention is paid to assuring senior management’s understanding of a practical and non-threatening yet effective approach to governing data that will be taken to mediate ownership and promote stewarding of data as a cross-organization asset, rather than the traditional method of “you will do this”.
• Best practices and key concepts of the non-threatening approach are communicated effectively, compared to existing practices to identify and leverage strengths and enable the ability to address opportunities to improve.
