This is a story of how a small data team changed the data culture of a large electrical utility with $27.1B(1) in assets. Focusing on the communication strategy in the initial stages of the Data Governance program made “Data Quality” part of the mainstream corporate language. An enterprise-wide program was implemented to centralize Data Governance initiatives, previously spread across numerous business functions, resulting in a common structure and language that facilitated collaboration. The data team inspired stakeholders to turn data pain points into aspirational data quality targets. At the end of this webinar, attendees will have insight into: • A communication strategy that inspires cohesive data behavior across an organization • An operating model for collaboration through Data Owners and Stewards, a Data Stewardship Council, and a Data Governance Steering Committee • A methodology to select Value and Outcome-Driven data projects (1) Canadian dollars as of December 31, 2019
