Topics covered in this training

Gain the knowledge, practice, and tools to tackle the data steward role

Our data stewardship training combines theory with practical exercises and individual reflection. It’s divided into four modules: building a common starting point, awareness, depth, and how to translate what you’ve learned to your organisation. As an additional option, we can use an intervision approach to share learning among your peers.

You’ll get access to the tools and resources needed to put data management into practice, augmenting existing frameworks – such as the DAMA-DMBOK – with our own experience to best apply it in practice. 

With a focus on building the right practical and theoretical skills – combined with real-life experiences from course leaders and other participants – you’ll be ready to apply what you’ve learned from day one. And because we begin with a deep dive zero measurement, every minute builds on your existing knowledge.

Explore this essential data role

  • Understand where the role of data steward fits in your organisation

  • Define key roles: data steward, data owner, and data analyst

  • Connect data stewardship theory to real business practice

  • Build data management and improvement processes for the future

The cases we faced in practice had a direct link to the theory that preceded them. What was nice to see is that by giving homework assignments we actually got to work with theory, also organisation-wide.
