How would you answer the following?

  1. I trust the accuracy of data I use in my job. Yes or no?
  2. The data I use and the results I publish are consistent with the rest of the organization’s metrics. Yes or no?

If you answered ’No’ to either one, here’s a follow-on question – is data inconsistency a pain point for your organization? If so, enter Data Governance and its proven frameworks, processes and tools.

There are many online sources to assist teams with building a business case for Data Governance and let’s assume your organization has cleared that hurdle. Now you’ve got the buy-in you need to start work, how should you proceed?

Think of Data Governance as a journey.

1. Agree on the Destination
2. Determine Who’s Driving
3. Get On The Road
4. Maintain Your Speed

The next part of the governance journey is getting the rest of the organization to use the standards you are creating – a forthcoming blog post.
