How to Select an Appropriate Approach in Data Governance with Robert Seiner

How to Select the Appropriate Approach to Data Governance (Non-Invasive Data Governance)

Data Governance programs focus on authority and accountability for the management of data as a valued organisational asset.

According to Gartner, "one size fits all approach to data and analytics governance cannot deliver the value, scale and speed that digital business demands."

Data Governance should not be about command-and-control, yet at times could become invasive or threatening to an organisation's work, people, and culture.

Non-Invasive Data Governance focuses on formalising existing accountability for the management of data and improving formal communications, protection and quality through effective stewarding of data resources.
