The Data World Cup, Featuring the Data Steward
Data stewards bridge the gap between data policies and processes and their execution.
PRO TIP: Watch out, saboteurs! The data steward has your number!
Know who to turn to and who can help resolve them.
PRO TIP: Never ask a data steward: "Oh, for which airline?"
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."
Data stewardship formalizes the monitoring and measurement of data.
PRO TIP: A Dashboard is a data steward's best friend.
Data stewards need to signal decision makers when there are opportunities on the horizon.
It is the job of the data steward to call out a warning or make tougher changes.
Data stewardship can be a thankless job, but stewards are an essential part of the game.
