To a High IQ! Information Stewardship: Accountability for Information Quality
In the January 2006 issue of the IAIDQ newsletter, I described management accountability for Information Quality as one of the fundamental principles of information quality management. I will now expand further on this point through a series of articles that focuses on Information Stewardship and Governance.
In this article, I address the business roles and the respective accountabilities each role has for information quality. Every manager, employee, and contractor in an organization has accountability for their role or roles in information. Information is just as much a product as the tangible products produced or services delivered by the organization. Every person, business, or system performs one or more of the information stewardship roles described below.
