Stakeholder Engagement

For one department at a time we are engaging business stakeholders, data users and leaders to determine the correct framework, amending the assignment of roles based on feedback. In discussions with other Distributed Network Operators which have mature governance frameworks in place, we have avoided assigning ownership by system or asset type, focussing instead on categories of data.
