Stewards do not need to be SMEs, but they must have solid understanding of how data supports the needs of the business.
PRO TIP: Data stewards don't always make the rules.
Sometimes data stewards need to call a time out or just get people's attention.
PRO TIP: Hone your whistling skills in Louisburg, NC, the "World's Whistling Capital."
