This is a different type of blog! I'm Lisa Allen and I am a data professional who has worked in data for many years. Recently, Nicola Askham interviewed me for DAMA UK on the topic of data governance. During the interview, I referred to several different resources and I promised to share them with you all, so here they are. But to start with, if you missed the interview, you can find it here:

  • Data Governance Interview with Lisa Allen.


With so many to choose from, I find myself on these more often than most. 


If you’re just starting in data governance the Data Management Book of Knowledge (DMBoK) is a must-read. And even if you are experienced, it is a handy reference guide.

Personal skills are essential for data governance. How to influence, how to deal with conflict and make yourself resilient etc. These all can help you on your journey. To develop your personal and leadership skills I’d highly recommend: 

Data technical skills

To keep learning what is going on in the world of data I listen to the following: 

Examples of data principles and data maturity models

As a data professional, I think it helps to refer to other organisations approaches for ideas and tips. Here are a few examples to help you on your way.

And finally, if you’d like to see an example of a data maturity model here’s a blog that explains the approach and a link to the model itself. 

That’s it! I hope you find these resources useful. There are so many more out there. Let us know what resources you use in your data governance approach.
