Bob will discuss :

  • What it means to operationalize Data Governance

About the Webinar

Everybody in the organization is a data steward if they are held accountable for their relationship to data. Understanding who does what with the data is an easy way to recognize who your data stewards are. The data stewards are the people your Data Governance program will rely on.

Join Bob Seiner for this month’s webinar, where when he will focus on the role that lies at the heart of any approach to a Data Governance program. The first challenge of many programs is to recognize the stewards and assist them in seeing themselves in that important role.

In this webinar, Bob will discuss:

  • Why everybody is a data steward
  • The stewards’ impact on the complexity of your program
  • How to leverage existing data responsibility
  • Engaging stewards based on their relationship to data
  • How to follow a Stewardship Approach

PRICE: Free to all attendees.

About the Webinar

Do you know what data policies are in place at your organization? Are the policies shelf-ware or do people know, understand, and follow what is stated in the policies? Many organizations have data policies – but don’t monitor their effectiveness. That is where Data Governance fits in.

In this month’s RWDG webinar, Bob Seiner will address data policy from several angles and suggest ways to leverage the guidelines to activate your Data Governance program. It’s time to take policies off the shelf and put them in the cubicles.

In this webinar, Bob will share:

  • The relationship between Data Governance and Policy Management
  • How to recognize the data policies already in place
  • Using data policy to bolster your Data Governance program
  • The makeup of a Data Governance policy
  • Having a policy to manage data policies – meta-policies?

Building a Data Governance Roadmap

DATE: July 16, 2020
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees.

Register by clicking here.

About the Webinar

A Data Governance roadmap is typically based on the results of a best practice assessment. The assessment defines the outcomes required to achieve Data Governance best practices while the roadmap details the “actionable streams” required to formalize a Data Governance program and achieve those outcomes.

In this month’s webinar, Bob Seiner will share the process he follows to build a Data Governance roadmap of actionable streams and the steps required to complete the streams. In addition, Bob will describe the activities that are common to most organizations getting started or evaluating the success of their program.

Topics to be discussed in this webinar include:

  • Criteria for defining best practices
  • Using the assessment results to build the roadmap
  • Examples of repeated actionable streams
  • The role of the program administrator in executing the roadmap
  • Communicating the roadmap to the stakeholders

Roles and responsibilities are the backbone to a successful Data Governance program. The way you define and utilize the roles will be the biggest factor of program success.

RWDG

Data Governance and Three Levels of Metadata Management

DATE: September 17, 2020
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees.

Register by clicking here.

About the Webinar

There are three levels of metadata that every organization must govern well. These levels are the semantic level, the business level, and the technical level. All three levels are important components of Data Governance and must be stewarded to focus on the goals and scope of your Data Governance program.

In this month’s installment of the Real-World Data Governance webinar series, Bob Seiner will present a three-tiered approach to defining, producing, and using all levels of metadata to further the cause of Data Governance. Governing the processes associated with this metadata tends to be a central focus of successful Data Governance programs. Join Bob to learn how to simplify the metadata focus.

In this webinar, Bob will discuss:

  • The three levels of metadata and how they differ
  • Sources of the metadata at each level
  • Metadata linkage between the levels
  • Processes to govern all the levels of metadata
  • Institutionalizing policy to assure quality metadata at all levels

Two Day Public Seminar: How to Build & Implement a Non-Invasive Data Governance™ Program @ Sheraton Station Square
Mar 21 @ 8:00 am – Mar 22 @ 4:30 pm

NON-INVASIVE DATA GOVERNANCE™:
THE TWO-DAY PUBLIC CLASS
PITTSBURGH, PA – MARCH 21 & 22, 2016

Many organizations are finding it necessary to implement Non-Invasive Data Governance™ and Data Stewardship programs to improve and achieve discipline and protection around the management of the enterprise’s most critical and valuable data.

Non-Invasive Data Governance™ programs, when applied to the existing organization and information resources of your organization (including structured data, unstructured data, master data, meta-data) are implemented to improve the value you gain from your data assets.  Governance programs typically focus on mitigating risk, improving data quality, reducing data duplication, formalizing accountability for data, and improving business and IT productivity.

Students of this class will learn how to implement effective a Non-Invasive Data Governance™ program and how to immediately formulate a strategy & plan that will deliver measurable results with minimal investment.

Robert S. Seiner of KIK Consulting & Educational Services has been implementing successful data governance and data stewardship programs for more than twenty years and has been transferring “how-to” knowledge to corporate, government and education entities via consulting, consultative mentoring & education for more than twelve years. A significant amount of the Seminar relates to Mr. Seiner’s experiences with many notable companies, government organizations and institutions of higher learning.

Mr. Seiner has offered this Seminar for corporate, government and education entities on site at their locations for many years and began providing the course in a public setting a few years ago due to overwhelming interest. By providing public classes, Mr. Seiner hopes to reach a broader audience and those companies that are interested in learning about successful stewardship & governance implementations but that don’t have the numbers of interested individuals to bring the Seminar on-site.

Space is limited to the first twenty five paid registrations. Please register today!
