CDMP Data Governance beta exam #datagovernance

I wrote the DAMA CDMP Data Governance beta exam recently. I scored 68%, which actually surprised me. Due to time constraints I only studied the data governance chapter of the DMBOK and attended the June MDM+DG conference in Toronto as study materials. That may have been good timing because there were some questions I recognized from material covered at the conference. There were also some questions that I didn’t understand what was being asked, which probably shows that I should have used a broader set of study materials.

This exam has a different feel from the other CDP exams, less technical, more shades of gray perhaps. I would characterize it as picking the most correct answer rather than just picking correct answer as on the more technical exams. I put that to the nature of data governance being more political than the other more technical areas. It was an interesting exam to write because of that.

I already have my CDMP so I didn’t really need to write it but beta exams are free and DAMA needs beta testers to validate the exam. If the beta is still open, I encourage anyone interested in data governance to give it a try. It helps DAMA get the exam validated and helps you to “know what you know”. It is also an interesting set of questions to work with.

    When the beta was over, my final score improved to over %70, masters level, so I converted the exam to a certification. My new CDMP certificate has the extra Data Governance and Stewardship certification on it. Technically I could pay an extra fee and get the DGP certification as well but so far I haven’t done that.
