Question: We're about to embark on a master data management project at our company. I will be helping to write the charter, and I'll be ultimately working with our data stewards to maintain the master and reference data through an interface that will be built as part of the project. Our talented technical group has already begun to formulate an approach to the project, which concerns me, because our information architecture group isn't involved in these discussions. Do you have any advice for providing some structure for the project? Do you have any advice about drawing people into a discussion of the various approaches to this type of project, before they become too adamant about their approach?
