IDQ Webinars: with John Ladley
The Importance of Principles and Policies
Information principles are the foundation of data governance and information management. They lay the foundation for policy, and set the tone for organization changes. Most shops start by copying a list from somewhere else. This is a good start, but rarely “closes the deal” when it comes to getting the principles accepted. This tutorial will cover a process to create principles and policies for your own organization. There will be examples of common principles and policies and examples of how they are adjusted for certain scenarios We will also cover the basic steps to roll out your initial data governance policies.
