Great post Charles!One huge challenge I've faced is even when the data a team peodivrs is smelling like roses, it is then passed between enough spreadsheets and mixed with other data of shall we say, less fresh a smell that the end result is poor quality.But because the core numbers came from the data warehouse, it gets tainted through association. Unfair, but it happens.I've found part of the key is to understand why all those spreadsheets are needed- usually its because you're missing subject areas or reports in the main system, and users are having to do it themselves . But I haven't seen an organisation yet that managed to supply everything needed all the time- there just always seems to be more demand than supply
