Level:  Business / Non-Technical

A dozen years ago Jim Collins authored the book Good to Great (Harper Business, 2001), the first business book that stretched far beyond the traditional business book audience and market. In this half-day working session with Bob Seiner, he will borrow from the main points of this book to focus on the activities organizations should consider to extend their good data governance programs to become great data governance programs.

Seiner will demonstrate factors that have led to “glass ceilings” and highlight those factors that world-class organizations have built governance into everyday activities. Attendees should expect to become part of the discussion while working toward a sensible list of these factors to be taken back to their organizations and applied accordingly.

In this session Mr. Seiner will lead active discussion regarding these items and more:

  • How Good Becomes the Enemy of Great
  • Not Letting Perfection Get in the Way of Good Enough
  • Addressing Who First, Then What
  • Confronting Brutal Facts
  • Developing a Culture of Formal Discipline
