Data Governance Roles and Why Everybody is a Steward

Roles and responsibilities are a core component of building a successful data governance program. Taking a non-invasive approach to role definition increases the odds that your program will add value and be sustainable. But taking this approach requires effective explanation of how to overcome the complexities required to wrap the entire organization in governance.

Join Bob Seiner for this special two-hour DAMA-NY presentation that will evolve a proven data governance framework into a complete set of roles and responsibilities while addressing everybody in the organization as a data steward. The first half of the session will translate the framework into clear roles with the second half focusing on the fact that everybody must be a steward in order to provide complete coverage for your organization – no matter its size.

This new for DAMA-NY presentation (live on Zoom) will educate and entertain while providing you a thorough data governance foundation to deliver measurable value for years to come. We hope you will join us by signing up today.

In this session, Bob will share:

Hour One:

  • Profoundly unique definitions of data governance and stewardship
  • A data governance framework that can be customized for your organization
  • Translating the framework roles component into an operating model
  • Detailed roles at each level of the organization
  • The importance of the Data Steward role

Hour Two:

  • Data and metadata will not govern themselves
  • Stewardship based on their data relationships
  • Getting data stewards to self-recognize
  • Leveraging data stewards to govern the data
  • Everybody is a Data Steward. Get Over It!
