Data Governance Training

A practical approach to Data Governance

Are you responsible for implementing Data Governance in your organisation?

It’s a daunting task isn’t it?

One of the biggest challenges you’re probably struggling with is knowing where to even start. 

There’s lots of advice available online and in books, but how do you take this huge quantity of sometimes conflicting theory and turn it into something practical?  You might have tried sharing some of this theory with your senior stakeholders but you are struggling to articulate what it means to them.

What is more if you fail to convince them to support your Data Governance initiative and you don’t start to actually deliver value, the Data Governance initiative will fail and you will be blamed.

 I get it. I have been there.

 Fortunately it doesn’t have to be that way. 

There is no such thing as a standard approach to Data Governance but there are some clear steps that everyone needs to follow to gain senior stakeholder buy in and to design a framework that is right for them.

Over 16 years of designing and implementing Data Governance Frameworks I have developed a practical approach that takes you through all the steps needed to be able to successfully design and implement a Data Governance Framework that is right for your organisation.


Everyone who completes the course gets a copy of the actual checklist I use when helping clients.


Here are some of the topics you will learn about:

The standard course can be delivered in-house, with the option of a second day workshop to start designing and creating an action plan for implementing your Data Governance Framework.

Alternatively we can work with you to create bespoke workshops tailored to your particular needs, whether that is training for Board members and senior executives, Data Owner and Data Steward training or looking at Master Data and Data Quality Fundamentals.
