👉 Engage with the management to understand their needs, highlight the current data challenges and limitations, and explain the role of data governance.
👉 Connect governance efforts to ongoing transformation initiatives like digitization, omnichannel enablement, or enterprise resource planning modernization.
👉 Look at data assets by domain and by data within each domain. That way, you can prioritize data assets.
👉 Adopt the level of governance sophistication appropriate to your organization and adjust as you go.
👉 Motivate employees to use data and encourage producers to share it.
These principles are critical because merely having a solid organizational structure won’t do.
While many businesses struggle to get data governance right, every business can succeed by strategically embedding it into their day-to-day.
