Considerable time and effort are devoted to developing and executing a data governance strategy. However, effective, and sustained communication is an often-overlooked critical factor. To formalize and foster a data-driven program and culture, organizations must remember to communicate clearly and often to drive buy-in and promote a two-way governance dialogue.

In this talk we’ll cover:

Why DG communication is important at all stages from program kick-off to business-as-usual;

  • Different types of DG communication
  • Components of CLEAR communication with examples to use in your own organization
