Hi Jim

Great article. This is similar to Hans Monderman's thinking - less is definitely more.

My mind also wanders to Cluedo, where a common scenario may play out as Colonel Mustard kills Mrs White with a lead pipe in the study.

Hi Jim, I appreciate your emphasis on collaboration and not "clobberation" to empower data consumers, stewards et al and flexibly respond to the needs of data/information management. An excellent primer on data governance is the 1985 movie "Bazil" with Robert De Niro. Should be required viewing before embarking on data governance. The whole "Buttle" and "Tuttle" data error and the "Ministry of Information" are wonderful commentary on how data governance can go astray. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWbIxFKtTmE
