Doing Data Governance

OCDQ Radio is an audio podcast about data quality and its related disciplines, produced and hosted by Jim Harris.

During this episode, I discuss the practical aspects of doing data governance with John Ladley, the author of the excellent book Data Governance: How to Design, Deploy and Sustain an Effective Data Governance Program.  Our discussion includes understanding the difference and relationship between data governance and information management, the importance of establishing principles before creating policies, data stewardship, and three critical success factors for data governance.

John Ladley is a business technology thought leader with 30 years of experience in improving organizations through the successful implementation of information systems.  He is a recognized authority in the use and implementation of business intelligence and enterprise information management (EIM).

John Ladley is the author of Making EIM Work for Business, and frequently writes and speaks on a variety of technology and enterprise information management topics.  His information management experience is balanced between strategic technology planning, project management, and, most important, the practical application of technology to business problems.
