About the Webinar

Best practices and lessons learned are powerful tools used to assess an organization’s readiness and initial activities associated with delivering a Data Governance program. There are two criteria to determine if something is best practice for your organization. And the definition of data governance best practice is best way to learn from others and begin with the end in mind.

Bob Seiner will share industry data governance best practices in this month’s installment of the RWDG webinar series. Learn how to use the best practices defined in this webinar to address opportunities to improve your organization’s data governance implementation. Attend this webinar and learn that assessing your organization may not be as difficult as you think.

During this webinar Bob will discuss:

  • How to define data governance best practices for your organization
  • Criteria used to determine if a practice is best practice
  • How to assess your organization against industry best practice
  • Assessing risks associated with best practice gaps 
  • Addressing opportunities to improve gaps uncovered in the assessment

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!

Data Governance Winter Conference 2017: How to Get Started with Data Governance @ Delray Beach, Florida
Dec 4 @ 8:30 am – 11:45 am

How to Get Started with Data Governance
Robert S. Seiner, Publisher/President, TDAN.com/KIK Consulting

Tutorial – Monday, December 4, 2017 – 8:30-11:45 am


  
When building a Data Governance program for a financial organization, there are two different ways to collect and use the metadata that moves the organization toward formalized accountability. Organizations can purchase or use software tools that are currently available on the market or they can build tools internally specific to their programs requirements. It is less expensive to start by building your own tools.

In this session with Bob Seiner, he will share several governance artifacts (tools that you can develop yourself) that are specifically focused on the needs of a financial organization. These artifacts can be used to enact stewards, engage them in governed processes, and communicate and enforce compliance and privacy rules. Attend this session and you will walk away with tangible tools to move your data governance program forward.

In this session, Bob will share:

  • The advantage of building your own tools first
  • Requirements for tools you can build yourself
  • Several key artifacts to execute authority over data
  • How to use the tools to benefit your organization
  • How to build artifacts that are easy to explain and use

Data Governance Winter Conference 2017: How to Save a Failing Data Governance Program @ Delray Beach, Florida
Dec 4 @ 1:00 pm – 4:15 pm

How to Save a Failing Data Governance Program
Robert S. Seiner, Publisher/President, TDAN.com/KIK Consulting

Tutorial – Monday, December 4, 2017 – 1:00-4:15 pm


  
Data Governance programs tend to take a long time to get started, to gain momentum and to demonstrate measurable value to the organization. Over this period, programs often fail to sustain the level of enthusiasm that existed when the program was just starting. There are many reasons for this. Management interest wanes, new projects grab people’s interests and work group meetings cease to be efficient and effective.

In this tutorial, Bob Seiner will identify and address the reasons why Data Governance programs fall apart or fail to be sustainable over lengthy periods. The initial approach to developing the program has something to do with it but lack of focus on essential program components is the true villain. Bob will share techniques that he has developed to assure long term program health.

Learn:

  • Ways to recognize that your Program is Dying
  • Core Program Components that Require Sustained Attention
  • Steps to Follow to Prevent an Early Program Demise
  • Ways to Extend Program Enthusiasm
  • How to Assure Program Continuity and Longevity
