Non-Invasive Data Governance (NIDG) does not mean that the governance of data and information will be easy or without trials and tribulations. Non-invasive does not mean that the program will be low impact. The title of this book is a dichotomy: achieving measurable results by being less threatening while the impact of striking with this approach can be huge. NIDG focuses on leveraging existing levels of accountability while addressing opportunities to improve. Read about a new framework for Non-Invasive Data Governance in this book that views the main components of a successful program through different levels and perspectives of the organization.

This book is a key that can help anyone unlock the knowledge that Bob has accumulated the hard way, from the experience of many real-life data governance implementations.

Bob Seiner’s new book, Non-Invasive Data Governance Strikes Again, delivers the right message at the right time for today’s data-driven organizations and their data leaders, CIOs, and CDOs. Most importantly, it addresses how to garner program support, demonstrating business value, and the people and technology elements of making it work. As a critical DataOps process, it is time for data governance that actually works.
Since we’ve both been involved in Data Governance since its earliest days, my friend Bob Seiner and I have many times been put together on stage to debate implementation approaches. I’d describe leadership-driven efforts focused on big changes, and he’d describe getting started with a non-threatening program that “focuses on leveraging existing levels of accountability while addressing opportunities to improve.” During debate, I’d ask him: What comes next? How do you grow such a program? How do you evolve from in-the-trenches attention to details to bigger-picture endeavors? In NIDG Strikes Again! Bob answers those questions, and more.
