Speaker: Tina McCoppin, Partner, Ajilitee

Data Stewards have it tough. Pulled in multiple directions, they often juggle too much and fall prey to scattered responsibilities without generating lasting, impactful results. Similar to being on a yo-yo diet, Data Stewards often find themselves either going strong or losing steam.
To strike the right balance of effort for sustained results, we recommend a Data Steward Health Plan that blends both cardio and weight training for data stewards to go the distance in their role. In other words, Data Stewards should blend a focus on standards and conformity, metadata, enterprise glossaries and data dictionaries (“cardio”) with strength training to develop the skeletal muscles of your organization in such areas as enterprise data integration (EDI), data quality (DQ), and master data management (MDM).
This pump-it-up session will pinpoint activities that really count for Data Stewards. The Data Steward Health Plan is designed to trim the time wasters (or “fat”) and build cardiovascular endurance and muscle strength for optimal efficiency and results. We also will cover the latest specialized equipment (tools and frameworks) needed to target specific muscle groups and types of (data) movement to support your Power Data Steward training.
This session will detail:
- Primary/secondary responsibilities of a Data Steward
- How and where to “trim the fat”
- The Data Steward Health Plan: a week-by-week, month-by-month program to shed the weight and power through your job
- Practical tips for time management
- Must have tools for transparency and visibility
- Real-world examples
