16:30 - 23:59 Interactive Workshop: Creating lines of sight: How to ensure Data Governance & Data Quality align with business strategy

Nigel Turner, Principal Consultant,Global Data Strategy

Often the biggest barrier to successful and sustainable Data Governance and Data Quality initiatives is an inability to demonstrate their benefits to the organisation. In particular, how can these be directly aligned to business strategy, including risk management, commercial aspirations and legal & regulatory imperatives? This is an important first step in gaining senior executive sponsorship and active support & commitment.

This interactive workshop will teach some highly effective techniques for creating a direct line of sight between Data Governance, Data Quality and business strategy. It will do this by introducing and populating a proven model, with supporting techniques, that can easily be applied to participants own organisations after the workshop.

To achieve this the workshop will cover:

  • Why Data Governance and Data Quality initiatives fail

  • The importance of aligning initiatives with business strategy and goals

  • Techniques and approaches for aligning Data Governance & Data Quality with business strategy

  • An interactive exercise to demonstrate how these can be applied to an organisation

  • The benefits of this approach

  • Lessons learnt from real life financial & other use cases
