Proactive Data Governance Organisation
From MIKE2.0 Methodology
-> You are here: Proactive Data Governance Organisation
A Proactive Data Governance Organisation is focused across projects, servicing inter-related projects as part of a large programme or multiple information-centric initiatives.
The defining characteristics of a Proactive Data Governance Organisation is that it is focused on addressing issues before they occur through Continuous Improvement, Ongoing Monitoring and Root Cause Analysis. The organisation is typically quite knowledgeable about issues in the current-state. The future-state for this organisation is reasonably well-defined at a programme level although there may be some unknowns or leveling issues.
From a technology perspective, these organisations have a well-implemented set of Foundation Capabilities for Information Development and Foundation Capabilities for Infrastructure Development. Their technology vision typically sees them moving to advanced capabilities such as Services Oriented Architecture as part of a model of Continuous Improvement but they may be in the early stages of moving in this direction.
The Organisational Model for the Proactive Data Governance Organisation has 3 major sets of roles and responsibilities at the leadership level:
Within this model, the Data Governance Organisation is still typically small that individuals may not be playing dedicated roles.
Roles and Responsibilities
The key roles and their responsibilities for the Data Governance Organisation are shown below.
Data Governance Council
The Data Governance Council provides operational leadership on the project, by dealing with issues as they arise and providing proactive solutions to resolving potential problems. Some individuals on the group (such as the Executive Sponsor) may not be involved on a daily basis, but all are dedicated enough to the project that it is their primary focus.
Data Stewards play a key role on the Council as the caretakers of information and are responsible for driving its improvement. The role of Data Stewards overlaps into the Delivery Team.
The Delivery Team provides the "hands on" implementation roles on the project. The Delivery Team provides the main implementation roles on the project during the Continuous Implementation Phases. They work under the direction of the Data Governance Council, most of who also have direct roles on the Delivery Team.
As part of a Proactive, delivery team members look to make improvement to the environment through root-cause analysis and refactoring of existing software.
Within this model, individuals may play multiple roles. For example Data Stewards may play a leadership role and help out in an operational fashion.
