Learning Objective

  • Learning Objective
    This overview course introduces the audience to the world of Information Governance and the role of Data Governance in an organisation’s broader information strategy. It will cover the practice of Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) and look at how those practices translate specifi cally to the area of Data Governance.
    The participants will take away an understanding of the key principles and objectives of data governance in an organisation and how it impacts other parts/functions of the organisation that create, consume or present data/information/insights. They will appreciate the need for a formal data governance organisation and the competencies that this organisation must have to be effective.
    We will look at the importance of data design and architecture in future-proofing an organisation’s decision support capabilities. This has specific impact on cost of ownership of IT systems.
    We will look at the role of policies, standards and rules and how they impact the reliability of any data-driven decision, product or service and how this in turn impacts the trustworthiness of a brand
    To re-enforce learning, the audience will participate in scenario discussions and table-top exercises based on real world challenges. Participants will graduate more equipped to articulate the proposition of a data-driven business, hinged on a robust data governance practice.
    Participants are encouraged to bring their work-place data challenges. These can be workshopped as learning opportunities and the contributor potentially takes away a solution to their challenge.
