A Final Thought: Performing Information Governance
"If you're going to do it, DO it!"
Success lies not just in implementing information governance, but in sustaining it in your organization through added value. After you've sold your organization on implementing information governance, after all the PowerPoint presentations and coffeecake kickoffs, simply presenting periodic data-quality reporting issues rarely sustains the budget for information governance organization. Successful organizations have "threaded" information governance activities and tasks into new development projects and operational activities, making them self-sustaining.
Consider not only the challenges for implementing an information governance process, but those activities and tasks that will add value as you perform information governance in your organization.
