2019 – Formalizing Data Governance in One Semester: A Nimble Approach at Bowdoin College

Presentation Summary

Instituting data governance doesn’t have to be an onerous effort. With an efficient task force that met for just four months, Bowdoin College created and adopted a set of policies and practices that formalized a data governance program. A practical approach will be shared, including concrete ways to organize productive committee meetings, accelerate the work of drafting policy, and keep the entire committee engaged. To ensure a successful start, Bowdoin began foundational work months earlier to build the College’s appetite and capacity for data governance. Expect to come away with actionable resources for starting data governance, or inspiring new approaches for an existing program.
