These situations - multiple stakeholders, shared resources, multiple "rounds" - can also be looked at in terms "tragedy of the commons".

Textbooks economics suggests property rights and pricing as the answer ... hard to do in most organisations.

Thanks for your comment Greg.

Excellent reference to "The Tragedy of the Commons" which I agree is sadly the stakeholder reality on many information management initiatives. With the absence of enlightened self-interest among the stakeholders, some form of information governance is necessary to enforce the sustainability of enterprise-wide initiatives.

Best Regards - Jim
