While most people think of governance as risk containment and setting limits on data sharing, Dawson argues that it is more importantly an enabler of innovation.  Governance provides “parameters, guidelines and policies that address risks, and allow the greatest possible scope for experimentation and value creation.”

Governance is a foundational aspect of our project at MIKE2.0 and provides a comprehensive approach to increasing competency in how information is managed across organizations.
