A GREAT CFO/CEO ONCE TOLD ME:
"I want each of my Execs to be the CDO of their own area of accountability".
I thought this a wise interim mechanism to mature an Executive Committee into the understanding the impact of data flows across their areas and the Enterprise as a whole.
When an Executive Committee understands the headaches involved in managing data from first hand experience they are more likely to:
- Support the creation of a CDO role, and
- Intelligently cooperate with the new CDO.
