Kiran Gill of Harte-Hanks Trillium recently shared Trillium’s checklist of five Data Governance disciplines. She writes, “These 5 areas provide a comprehensive check list, appropriate structure and ensure that all key areas of data governance are covered. Considering the 5 disciplines for each process or business challenge being investigated can help your business get closer to achieving best in class governance.”

The first is strategy: “Defining a data strategy that outlines the direction and vision of data in the business is critical. This step looks at what data means to different parts of the business, the gaps, the risks and what “success” looks like. This is where the definition of the data journey is crucial and any findings are fed back into the data governance cycle.”

Next comes people and organization: “Creating a culture of ownership allows key people in the business to take responsibility for the data that falls within their remit. Empowering the people within the business with the tools, knowledge and education will enable these key personnel to take control of their data and processes.”
