About the Webinar

“It” can be relative to something else; “It” can be what is perceived; “It” can be what you state it as; “It” can vary by person, by group, by area, etc. – so, what is “it”?

The “It” in this case refers to value; more specifically the benefits that governance can bring to an organization.  Even if you are a seasoned governance practitioner or someone just starting the journey, the question you wrestle with most often is “how do I measure the value of governance?”  The answer to this question, unfortunately, is not so simple. The value of governance – a.k.a benefits – is often hard to define and even harder (at times) to measure in a way that is meaningful to a broad group of stakeholders – but not impossible!

This session will provide insight into:

  • Why having a business owned, operated governance function is the first step in defining business-centric value
  • How to develop measurable goals and aligning the right strategies for success
  • How you can align governance stakeholders on a common set of goals to achieve positive outcomes
  • How to build a framework for developing a balanced approach to measuring the value of your data governance effort
