About the Webinar

Many Data Governance programs require a Data Governance Charter before they get started. A tremendous amount of effort can go into the development and approval of the charter. Many organizations are not permitted to get started until their Data Governance charter is approved.  The question is, why is a charter so important?

Join Bob Seiner and special guest Anne Buff for this month’s RWDG webinar where he will address Data Governance Charter requirements and share how to develop and gain approval for the charter. Bob will share examples of charters and describe how the need for the charter and the charters themselves differ from organization to organization.

During this webinar Bob and his guest will discuss:

  • The core components of a Data Governance Charter
  • How to know when a Data Governance Charter is required
  • How to gain approval of the Data Governance Charter
  • Using the charter as a living breathing document
  • Sharing the charter as a primary communications tool
