Less is more
Let’s have a frank chat about the state of data governance today. It’s way over-baked. One well known data governance guide is 588 pages long! It’s more of a reference work than a practical tool. You actually need less governance than the pro-governance people want, a whole lot less. All too often they’ll promote an elaborate, one-size-fits-all set of data governance processes that inhibit innovation and, perversely, also inhibit good data quality.
