About the Webinar

A Data Steward Job Description is a list of job responsibilities that a Data Steward uses for tasks, or functions, and responsibilities of them in their everyday role. It includes to whom they report, the qualifications or skills needed by the person, and sometimes even includes a salary range. The job description of a Data Steward is not a new job description or different from their other job description. Is this confusing? We thought so.

This Real-World Data Governance webinar with Bob Seiner will focus on defining the typical responsibilities for every data steward all at once, no matter the industry, their role in the organization, or their role in the Data Governance program. Bob will focus on a list of competencies required for people to become great Data Stewards.

The session will include:

  • Components of a Data Steward Job Description
  • Seiner’s Rules for Becoming a Data Steward and How They Apply
  • Getting the Data Steward Involved in the Writing
  • Evaluating a Data Steward Based on the Job Description
  • Is a Job Description Even Necessary
