Simple Governance for Data Ecosystems

A good overview by BCG of the opportunities and barriers to sharing data across companies as part of a data ecosystem. The “six rules of smart simplicity for data sharing” are quite a useful summary of what needs to be addressed, and the examples provide useful illustrations. However, working through the processes and practices required for success in these 6 areas is quite another matter.

Rule 1. Understand what people really do.

Rule 2. Reinforce the integrators.

Rule 3. Increase the total quantity of power.

Rule 4. Increase reciprocity.

Rule 5. Expand the shadow of the future.

Rule 6. Reward those who cooperate.
