No, I was not unwell, just laying low for a bit and trying to get my bearings. I am part of a new team and just wanted to make sure I wasn’t rocking any boats with my social participation. It turned out to be a good move. The organization I work for (including my new boss), just finished drafting up some proposed guidelines for employee’s use of social media. I thought I’d just sit tight and wait until they came out so I could have a look and make sure I wasn’t breaking any corporate policies. As it happens I’m good to go, my new boss is cool with whatever I do as long as:
1/ I don’t get him fired
2/ I don’t get his boss fired
I like his nice broad guidelines, I should be able to follow them easy peasy. I suggested to him they should be our corporate policy for employee’s use of social media. Nice and short and ‘to the point’! Alas, some people have a need for more complete and specific information … details schmetails....
We still have an MDM initiative underway and Data Governance will play a big part of the solution. What is happening right now is a lot of process stuff to get a project of this size approved and organized; funding, governance, approvals, stakeholder participation, budgeting etc.. Things should start to ramp up in the next month or so and I will be sure to post some stories on what the goals, challenges, successes and fun 2010 brings!
Thanks Goodness! I felt like I was missing all the fun!
