Information Stewardship: Information Systems' Accountabilities for Information Capability
In the January 2007 issue of the IDQ newsletter, I defined Information Stewardship as 'the willingness to be accountable for a set of information for the well-being of the larger organization, by operating in service, rather than in control, of those around us.”
In that article, I described the nine Business Information Stewardship roles and the respective accountabilities of each role for information quality. Every manager, employee and contractor in an organization has accountability for his/her role or roles in information.
This article, the second in a series that discusses Information Stewardship and Governance, examines the Information Systems Stewardship roles and their accountabilities for the quality of the information resources and the capability of the enterprise to manage its information effectively.
