Every organization that has started a data governance and / or data stewardship program should have an assessment of its efforts performed after one year, to establish a performance baseline. This evaluation should be based on industry standards and best practices, and should form the basis of a roadmap for the program’s next two-three years.
Older data governance and data stewardship programs should be assessed to discover their strengths, their areas of improvement, and the organizational challenges facing them. This review can serve as a catalyst for re-invigorating the program and injecting some new best practices that can assist with data governance socialization.
EWSolutions has developed a data governance assessment method based on best practices, industry standards and a proven track record of successful data governance and data stewardship program implementations.
