A Data Governance (DG) organization and its structure should be defined to align with your company’s organizational hierarchy and resources.
Finding the right people to assign to data governance requires an understanding of both the functional and the political role of governance within your organization.
This 11-page guide highlights many best practices for choosing the right resources to support the required roles, for example:
- A three-tiered governance structure is often effective and includes a Steering Committee, DG Office and representatives from Business and IT.
- The first step in implementing a DG program is usually to select a DG Lead.
- The Steering Committee’s responsibility is to articulate the DG vision and provide general oversight and decision-making.
