Establishing BI steering committees

Our company has recently created an Enterprise Data Warehouse environment - one small project has gone live and a large project is in progress and is scheduled to go live at the end of the year.

We have recommended the formation of a "Business intelligence (BI) Steering Committee" to develop and direct enterprise BI strategy and priorities, and a "BI Working Committee" to direct the implementation of the BI Strategy.

Can you provide us with any hints or tips based on your experience?

Some specific questions are:

  • What types of people should make up each of these business intelligence committees? Assuming you agree, how do we justify having senior business reps on the BI Steering Committee?
  • Can you point us to any best practices around the formation of such committees?
