Top 5 key learnings from CDO Masterclass Season 2

  • Generating value and value streams from data are not one-step processes that can be gathered from simply observing your data set. Learning from current events and trends can help you better understand your customers and their behaviors over time.
  • It’s essential to implement real-world use cases when proving the value and importance of a data quality plan in an organization. Too often, organizational decision-makers are unlikely to be interested in generating a new or updated data governance plan, but providing real results in specific use cases is a great way to capture attention and instill the importance of data governance with your entire organization.
  • To embark on a journey of change management, you must understand your company’s current data culture. Within your data governance strategy, CDOs and data professionals should create a change management plan to further ensure your data structure is future-proof and prove value within your company.
  • Critical data elements vary by group, organization, and industry. Any information that potentially affects critical business decisions can be considered critical. As such, it’s important to implement high-quality storage, organization, and management techniques for these critical data elements, and often use cases are the best way to create a strategy that works for you.
  • Data culture is best integrated with a multi-step approach that empowers employees to use data smartly, provides a governance strategy to define and protect data, implements correct technology to build a sustainable data architecture, and considers data value creation.
