"Information asset" needs to be more than a metaphor - you need to provide demonstrable measures that your information management programs are working.

Measuring the improvements and benefits of data programs are also critical to maintaining the interest of the stakeholder groups, as well as determining whether the program is focusing on the most valuable initiatives.

Using one or more case studies as examples, we will show how metrics can be created for any type of company or organization and what types of metrics are suitable for measuring the success of your information management or data governance program.

We will also review:

  • The difference between a metric and a key performance indicator (KPI)
  • Essential categories and types of measurements
  • Linking progress metrics and impact metrics
  • Aligning metrics to key business goals and objectives
  • How to communicate measurements in a meaningful way
