For Data Governance Success, Align It With Your Culture
Company culture is a popular topic online. Just look at the number of titles on Amazon — more than 500 books on the subject. There are dozens of podcasts discussing company culture, as well.
Company culture plays a significant role in becoming data-driven. In our data-centric era, companies of all sizes aspire to this, where they effectively harness data’s power to drive innovation, make informed decisions and gain a competitive edge in their respective industries.
In my Walk, Run, Fly to a Data-Driven Culture article, I explore four organizational culture types — Collaborate, Create, Compete and Control — and share a Competing Values Framework (CVF) for Data Governance. (We adapted the CVF from a popular and time-tested framework developed in the 1980s.)
I encourage you to read the article to see if you can identify the dominant characteristics of your organization and choose a culture type that best fits. As you study the CVF for your culture type, consider how your business can best harness its culture to drive successful data governance initiatives.
Culture isn’t just a buzzword — it impacts how teams function, how governance is approached and how leaders make critical decisions. Knowing your organization’s culture is a crucial first step toward strategically aligning it with your data management and governance strategies, keeping you on the path to data-driven success.
