Let's face it. To our executives, Data Governance is dry and competes with other enterprise initiatives like building data warehouses, MDM, data visualization, and all that expensive bright shiny technology waiting in the lobby. Competition for funding is fierce. There's no guarantee that your governance effort, and you, will be funded into next year. What can you do? Well, you can communicate.
Having a documented plan for most anything is a great idea. You cannot overemphasize the importance of having a plan for communicating Data Governance across your enterprise. This session will present a proven Data Governance Communications Plan (template provided!). We will look at communications objectives, timelines, messages, and methods. Examples of the following will be presented:
- Company newsletter articles
- Example company-wide emails
- Departmental Lunch and Learns
- Data Governance Week activities
Don't wait to communicate! Your success is at stake!
