  1. Nice analogy Jim. This point that you and Andrew White have made is self-evident to a degree where there should be no need to make it. However, it seems to me that even with the increasing all pervasiveness of data, most organizations treat it as an IT issue. This means that the people working tend to be technical people who are more concerned about metrics and analytics rather than business objectives.
    The only way to tackle this problem is to get a greater buy-in from business leaders, not just in terms of green lighting data governance projects, but also getting involved in the project themselves.
