Data Stewards, this guide’s for you. If you’ve ever wondered what your primary and secondary responsibilities should be, this handy reference guide maps out key responsibilities within the corporate information domains of Enterprise Data Model, Data Integration Projects, and Data Governance. It goes a step further by providing a sample calendar of recurring and one-time data steward activities — an invaluable best practices resource for seasoned and new practitioners.
Not all activities will apply to your organization, and juggling them among your other day-to-day responsibilities takes practice and discipline to reap measurable improvements (see presentation: Become a Power Data Steward). But the right tools can help. Our Data Steward Activity Guide and Calendar is part of an overall Data Steward Health Plan that can transform your data governance into a sustainable program that delivers tangible business value.
