This session will include a moderated Q&A featuring questions from the live audience.
With the popularity of analytics and data science, the use of data in the workplace has become as common as using email or the telephone. The diversity and growth of data has amplified the complexities of using and analyzing data. Mistakes happen because of data inaccuracies, data misunderstandings, and misuse.
In response, companies have implemented data governance programs and positioned steering committees to institutionalize methods, develop standards, and formalize rules to resolve their data problems. Unfortunately, most programs struggle because the steering committee is comprised of individuals with minimal data governance knowledge, without clarity as to the tactics and activities involved with building a data governance program.
So, what are the responsibilities of a steering committee? What activities should they address? Which duties should be delegated?
In this session, Evan Levy will discuss the core activities of a steering committee and review the different responsibilities and tactics available to build out a data governance program. He’ll also review the most common obstacles. Levy will discuss:
- The different models for a data governance steering committee
- The core responsibilities of a data governance steering committee
- The committee’s execution tactics (and activities)
- Common committee obstacles (and solutions)
