We’re making major progress! Not to say we don’t still have a gazillion things we want to do but our Data Governance community is awesome and delivered a lot of value to our organization this year. Which is why I’ve been so absent on this blog. It’s been verrry busy!!! Anyway I thought I would share what we did with you.
- 59 root cause Issues logged, prioritized and ownership established
- 12 root cause issues resolved. (coming soon I hope to be able to share the benefits we are measuring)
- The resolution of 6729 priority Data Quality issues – I know right?
- 10 business problems solved at our Steward Drop In Clinic
Next up: expanding our Issue tracker from tracking issues for the Company domain to include multiple data domains.
- 3 Community barometers undertaken with all resulting recommendations completed
- Training to over 450 stakeholders
- 10 Data Champions Recognized under a new recognition program
