MANAGING BLIND: A DATA QUALITY AND DATA

Companies and countries run on data but rarely question its origin, accuracy or significance, that is until something goes wrong. It took me thirty years in search of a solution to data quality and data governance to develop ISO 8000, the international standard for data quality. It was an insightful and unexpected journey across four continents and it is gratifying to see how many are rapidly becoming aware that by improving the quality of their data they can easily remove their own blindfold.
