About the Presentation
If your organization understands your function, they see you as an investment. If your organization does not understand what you do, they are likely to perceive you as a cost. The goal of this webinar is to provide you with concrete ideas for how to reinforce the first mindset at your organization. Success stories must be used to ensure continued organizational support. When selling data governance to organizational management, it is useful to concentrate on the specifics that motivate the initiative. This means developing a specific vocabulary and set of narratives to facilitate understanding of your organizational business concepts. For example: using specific common terms (and narratives) when referencing organizational mishaps, e.g. The Chocolate Story.
Learning Objectives include:
- Understanding contextually why data governance can be tricky for most organizations
- Demonstrate a variety of “storytelling” techniques
- How to use “worst practices” to your advantage
- Understanding foundational data governance concepts based on the Data Management Body of Knowledge (DMBOK)
- Taking away several novel but tangible examples of generating business value through data governance
