Why Data Governance?

Why Data Governance?

I started The Art of Data Governance to take a 360 view of data governance and to explore its intersections with Data Stewardship, Data-as-a-Product, Platform Thinking, and Collaborative Innovation, all in a cloud-driven and increasingly decentralized world!

Building in Public

I'm also taking a leaf from the Build-in-Public playbook to develop The Art of Data Governance with practitioner members and give visibility to my ongoing action-based research on Governance Frameworks for Data Collaboratives (very much a work in progress!).

What do I mean by Building in Public?

Building in public refers to the act of actively developing a project and using a broader audience as an accountability system...whether it’s sharing periodic findings or committing to a monthly newsletter to summarize the state of research, building in public motivates one to accomplish more by being openly accountable to an audience.

It's a Journey!

It's a journey rather than a destination, with insights from fellow travelers, wrong turnings, bumps in the road, and the odd small moments of clarity with my fellow professionals in data governance and data stewardship.

So why not subscribe to get the latest on the art, practice, and science of Data Governance...
