Data governance
Having just attended the MIT CDOIQ Symposium last month, I tend to agree with what one CDO speaker, Mark Ramsey of GlaxoSmithKline, had to say -- that it's far better to take data governance off the CDO's lap and hand it off to the business and the actual stakeholders.  That way, they'll have to live with the results of all the sloppiness they've been getting away with and figure out a way to make it work for the CDO and for the rest of the organization.

Some of the issues described here sound like they'd benefit from that tactic -- and that these issues are more about data governance than about evangelism.

Great advice for communicating about data and gaining the much-needed support of project stakeholders. Much of the advice seems to come from a sales mindset - this is what you're doing, after all.
