A governance program can benefit an organization because it does the following:
- Facilitates strategic planning and efficient decision-making.
- Builds a common understanding of the content and users’ technology.
- Provides a forum for users to advocate for their needs.
- Establishes clear user feedback and support channels.
- Grows understanding of required roles and responsibilities.
- Monitors data quality and ongoing value.
