Data Governance Training

A comprehensive guide to everything you need to know and all the skills you need to make data governance successful in your firm.

Cognopia’s 2021 Report on Data Maturity found that 42% of companies provide limited or no training to their data governance teams. This has a direct, measurable negative impact on their data maturity. Those companies that do invest in external experts to train data governance teams score 0.75 points higher for data maturity than those that do not.

At Cognopia, we focus our training on 2 different groups of stakeholders. We have practical, hands-on training workshops designed to support the data governance resources. We also run Executive Education Experiences designed to energise the senior leadership team in your firm about the benefits of data governance, their role in data governance, and how they can get started.
