DAM Europe 2023

The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media


An A-Z of Managing Governance – Why Should There Be an Effective Good Governance Strategy in Place in Your Organisation?

29 June, 10:00 AM

Governance underpins your organisation’s DAM and is the critical process that holds your DAM together. Adherence to governance regulations must be a priority as more and more organisations become truly data driven.

Governance is not an option to be ignored. Getting Governance wrong is a costly mistake.

Maintaining the value of your data is of vital importance, and Governance provides the framework that ensures programme goals are met – both during DAM implementation and thereafter.

To be effective, governance must:

  • Be considered as a ‘holistic corporate objective’.
  • Establish policies, procedures and training for the management of data across the organisation.
  • Reach all levels of the organisation.
  • Ensure that your metadata stays relevant to address changing business needs, user needs and the use of language.

This panel discussion, moderated by Lisa Grimm, Executive Consultant, ICP, will be informative and engaging, covering the who, what, how and why of Governance - focusing on key drivers including:

  • How to do Governance.
  • Is there more than one ‘Governance’?
  • Communications, transparency, and accountability.
  • Governance and DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion). 
  • Challenges and success stories.

Great to be back in person at the HS DAM Europe 2022! Great opportunity to hear from peers in the industry and actually meet people again. Leaving with lots of areas to explore!

HS DAM events are an invaluable opportunity to meet a wide range of DAM practitioners, futurologists, and deep specialists. You'll find parallels in industries you know and new concepts from industries you don't, that will make you question and improve your practice.
