Level:  Intermediate

Data Governance programs take a lot of time, money and effort to get going. Very often companies fail again and again to keep going. And they go back to basics and start all over again - different people, different sponsors, maybe even a different methodology - but starting again. And of course, the rest of the business is frustrated waiting for Data Governance to work. This workshop is designed to help you to take the next steps.

We will focus on the following areas:

  • Identify where we are in the maturity curve
  • Prioritize the work to be done
  • Get people involved
  • Refine our communication strategy
  • Get HR involved in building the right KPI's
  • Report our Quick Wins

Please join Sue, and find out how she believes Data Governance can be sustained and become self-supporting.

Sue Geuens? started in Data Management in 1996 when she was handed a disk with a list of builders on it and told they were hers to manage. Sue mentions this as fate taking over and providing her with what she was "meant to do." Various data roles later, her clients numbered 3 of the top 4 banking institutions in SA, a number of telco's and various pension funds, insurance companies, and health organisations. Sue was the initial designer of data quality matching algorithms for a SA built Data Quality and Matching tool (Plasma Mind). This experience stood her in good stead, as she slowly but surely climbed the ladder in Southern Africa to become the first CDMP in the country. Sue worked tirelessly on starting up DAMA SA with the successful Inaugural meeting in February of 2009. She was unanimously voted as President just prior to this event and became Past President at end of 2015. Sue is the current DAMA I President
