- Governance Metrics. There are metrics that matter, those that are easy to collect, and those that capture the imagination.
- Governance Vision. Effective governance is part of a larger, positive vision, even if engagement happens only at grassroots levels.
- Governance Footprint. The size of your governance framework should be no larger than the minimum required, but also no smaller.
- Governance Ownership. Stewardship selection is important but sometimes counterintuitive. Once you know what you’re measuring, you can find areas of greatest impact and involvement.
- Governance ROI. It can be difficult to connect governance efforts to value, especially if “risk avoidance” is your primary goal.
- Leveraging IT policies, procedures and controls is only one side of the IG coin. The other has to do with information architecture and the principles of records management.
- Fundamental question: “What Business Problem Are You Trying to Solve?”
- Cornerstone concept: “Information as an Asset”
Who Should Attend:
- Information Governance Officers
- C-Level Suite Officers
- Data Management Officers
- Information Technology Professionals
- Other related/interested Professionals and Organizations
