Data Governance Training
It’s no secret that we believe that one of the most important aspects of a successful Data Governance program at your organization is to ensure that all of your employees receive the proper training. If everyone is not working with the same assumptions and goals then the organization will never reach the level of data governance succes that it aims for.
The difficulty with training an entire organization around data governance is that there are often so many groups focusing on different projects and completing different tasks. The cost of getting everyone into training courses and workshops can quickly add up. Thankfully, there is a solution that an organization can implement that is both cost effective and successful at training an entire staff on proper data governance techniques.
Data Governance Training Through eLearning
One of the most cost effective ways of explaining the importance of Data Governance with your employees is through an eLearning solution. This training approach can be very similar to the security training sessions organization conduct each year to make sure staff is keeping proper protocols for protecting an organizations intelectual property.
An elearning solution can be custom developed to demonstrate the specific approach you’d like to implement for proper data governance in your organization. These approaches are excellent as they can be repeated, easily required of all new incoming employees, and can be used be different parts of the organization as needed.
An even better idea would be to make the implementation of required eLearning course completion be part of every new project your organization undertakes. As they review the material continually they’ll develop a strong understanding of how the organization works with data.
eLearning courses can be developed for Computer Based Training or Web Best Training approaches. They can be taken by your employees at their desk. They are often less expensive than requiring week long training sessions and the ability to test an employees knowledge at the end of the course allows for an assurance that staff understands the material presented to them.
If your organization is not using elearning approaches to data governance it is something you should seriously investigate.
