Level:  Business

To avoid a "ready-shoot-aim" approach, Data Governance Best Practices are developed to help organization's assess their present business needs, leverage existing capabilities and address opportunities to improve. Best Practices become the core value of the early steps of Data Governance Program development and deployment. However, many organizations do not spend the time to develop this easy-to-build list.

In this session, Bob Seiner will provide an adaptable definition of Data Governance Best Practices, a starter list of best practices for consideration and a model for how to use the best practices to produce and follow an "actionable" data governance work plan.

Bob will cover:

- Definition of Data Governance Best Practices, Their Purpose and Use - Criteria for Development of Useful Best Practices - Using Best Practices to Identify Leverage-able Strengths - Using Best Practices to Address Opportunities to Improve - Producing a Best Practice Gap / Risk Analysis - Development of Recommendations and an "Actionable" Plan
