Data Governance SNAFU: "So, why do we need all this Data Governance schtick anyway?!"

"We're all too busy doing real work for all this Data Governance stuff. Thanks for your time, but I really don't think it's for me. Have a nice life." Familiar?!

Well, my esteemed colleague at UNSW, Chris Will, just put me onto a short series of videos by New York University Health Science Libraries, which make the point so much better than any long-winded Blog post that I could come up with...

(They've also consolidated the whole story into one complete mini-movie here...)

Even more from NYU Health Science Libraries on their YouTube Channel....

Enjoy! (And then die inside just a little when you think of the current reality within your organisation...)
