The Mission and Vision of Data Governance
To identify all governing rules and regulations, to continuously protect the interests of data stakeholders and to meditate and settle any issues as a result of disobedience to the said rules and regulations are the three main mission of Data Governance. These missions of Date Governance reflect those greatly affected by the process, specifically those data stakeholders and other participants. To simply yet fully comprehend the mission and vision of Data Governance, let us take the example of on of the most common organization- a bicameral government.
Data governance operates like this kind of government with its three separate branches: the executive branch, legislative branch and the judicial branch- all having their own duties, functions, and checks & balances. For background, the legislative passes, makes and even changes laws, the judicial branch interprets these laws specifically in terms of settling and resolving issues and the executive branch makes sure that these laws are followed and reinforced while providing all services to its constituents.
On the other hand, Data Stakeholders are like citizens particularly in terms on their rights, privileges and obligations. Just like a citizen whose actions is governed by laws, Data Stakeholders should be aware that there are rules governing their actions when it comes to traveling to different data domains. And they are also liable and can be sanctioned according to the rules set by the Data Governance office.
Those in the lower level can have their own mission specifically for their type of program and data. However, these specific missions must still be in accordance or in response to the general three missions of Data Governance.
Along with mission is vision, which should also be concise and comprehensible. When crafting your program’s visions, use inspiring words that can entice and persuade Data Stakeholders to set their own data-related goals.
