About the Webinar

Roles and responsibilities are the foundation of a successful Data Governance program. An operating model of roles focuses on all levels of the organization including the executive, strategic, tactical and operational responsibilities. A complete model also includes roles that support the program.

In this month’s RWDG webinar, Bob Seiner will present a proven Operating Model of Data Governance Roles & Responsibilities that can be applied to the existing culture of any organization. This webinar may be the most important webinar of the year because of its impact on the rest of your data governance program.

In this webinar Bob will share information about:

  • The Operating Model as a pyramid diagram
  • Three different approaches to stewardship
  • Five distinct levels of responsibilities
  • Who is expected to participate at each level?
  • What will be “the ask” of these people?

About the Webinar

There are three distinct approaches to implementing Data Governance programs. There is the command-and-control approach, the traditional approach, and the non-invasive approach to implementing data governance. Selecting the best approach for your organization may be the most important data governance decision you make.

Join Bob Seiner for this month’s installment of the Real-World Data Governance webinar series as he compares and contrasts the three approaches. In this webinar Seiner will describe a method to compare the approaches using five primary components of data governance viewed by the five levels of responsibility associated with the program.

In this webinar Bob will discuss:

  • Three distinct approaches to implement Data Governance
  • Five core components to Data Governance success
  • Assessing each approach by each core component
  • Why the selection of approach is so important?
  • How to determine the best approach for your organization

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!

Regular Registration

Using Metadata to Enable Data Governance
Robert S. Seiner, Publisher/President, TDAN.com/KIK Consulting

Tutorial – Monday June 12, 2017 – 1:30-4:45 pm


  
Metadata lies at the heart of improving data governance capabilities. From the metadata collected in purchased software to the metadata in the internally developed tools and templates associated with your program, metadata improves the understanding, quality, protection and analytical capabilities associated with your organization’s most critical data.

In this half-day session with Bob Seiner, he identifies the specific metadata associated with improving these governed data activities and highlights when, where and how that metadata can enable data governance program success. You may be surprised where some of that metadata can and should be found. 

In this session, Bob will share:

  • The metadata that enables specific aspects of governance
  • Where that metadata can be found
  • The value that comes from governing specific metadata
  • Best practices associated with governing metadata
  • A framework for collecting and sharing governance metadata

What is Next for Data Governance? Survival Guidelines  
Robert S. Seiner, Publisher/President, TDAN.com/KIK Consulting

Session – Tuesday June 13, 2017 – 4:45-5:30 pm


Data Governance has had that name for approximately twenty years. Before that, core principles of Data Management were all the rage – and before that it was Information Engineering. At the heart of these disciplines is best practice associated with the definition, production and use of data. So what’s next?

This session with Bob Seiner will focus on the future of Data Governance as the discipline expands to address the advanced use of all data – big data, smart data, metadata and the internet of things data to name a few. Join Bob for a lively session where he will discuss future use of data governance programs to address the future uses of data.

In this session Bob will present:

  • Evolution from Data Governance to what’s next
  • Governance requirements – past, present and future
  • Getting Management to continue to push for governance
  • Positioning Data Governance as a steady influence
  • Future applications of existing Data Governance programs
