‘Nuts & Bolts: The Mechanics of Data Governance’ Excerpt
As authors and Baseline Consulting experts Kimberly Nevala and Stephen Putman expressed it in “Nuts & Bolts” from “The Data Governance eBook”:
“[D]ata governance can be tough. By definition, innovation is disruptive and antithetical to established paradigms. Applying rigor in the form of governance and oversight to information is no exception to this rule. Mix the laundry list of competing information needs and issues in the average enterprise with the inevitable confusion regarding ‘what does it mean’ and the data governance proposition quickly becomes overwhelming. The multitude of data governance definitions and methodologies parlayed by both industry analysts and vendors — is it: data quality? information policy? a dashboard? a council? — certainly doesn’t help.
The fact is: there is no standard playbook for data governance. The structure of your program is dependent on the specific problems governance needs to address and the organization’s incumbent organization and culture.”
“The Data Governance eBook” presents an entertaining business “parable” about the successes and failures of four employees of the fictional SpectraDynamo company as they struggle to bring data governance policies to their corporate culture.
