The Data Leaders are a coalition of like-minded, aligned and focused thought and practice leaders in the management of information assets (all data, information and knowledge).
We want to help leaders around the world recognize that their data can be assets of enormous value and that they must be managed as such. We want to accelerate this change.
About

We want to unlock the value of data and treat it as an important asset...

The Leader’s Data Manifesto community is a coalition of like-minded, aligned and focused thought and practice leaders in the management of information assets (all data, information and knowledge).

The job of Data Leaders is to make The Leader’s Data Manifesto a reality.

We provide resources to help organizations of all sizes and types drive business outcomes, manage risks, better compete in markets, increase profitability, and provide services that make the world a better place by better managing their data and information assets: their records, documents, drawings, computer files,  contracts, paper files, data tables, digital and paper media across all formats and storage.

Data Leaders is driving a movement such that organizations deliberately manage data and information with the same accountability as other assets.  Data Leaders will also:

  • Motivate individuals to lead the transformation in their teams, departments and companies.
  • Provide them with simple tools and the essential guidance needed to be successful.
  • Empower them to help others in their organizations to join the movement.
  • Raise the level of data literacy.
  • Demonstrate the value proposition data.

The basic ideas driving the Data Leaders are:

  • When properly managed, data is fundamentally an asset to any organization in the same way its people, finances, inventory or raw materials are assets. If not properly managed, data is a liability.
  • Most organizations require major changes in approach, management roles and responsibilities, and techniques to properly manage data assets. The Leader’s Data Manifesto lays out what’s possible.  In particular, most organizations’ best opportunities for organic growth lie in data.
  • Major change occurs when new ideas are broadly accepted, then internalized. A new perspective on data is no different. Change must be accepted and internalized.
  • The Data Leaders focuses on ensuring that organizations increase their desire to embrace and develop the skills necessary to manage their data assets. There is a need for an organization to drive this required change.

Data Can Be Your Differentiator!

How do you want to be known?
If you don’t manage data as an asset then it could be a liability.

Mission

The basic ideas driving the Data Leaders are:

When properly managed, data is fundamentally an asset to any organization in the same way its people, finances, inventory or raw materials are assets. If not properly managed, data is a liability.

Most organizations require major changes in approach, management roles and responsibilities, and techniques to properly manage data assets. The Leader’s Data Manifesto lays out what’s possible. In particular, most organizations’ best opportunities for organic growth lie in data.

Major change occurs when new ideas are broadly accepted, then internalized. A new perspective on data is no different. Change must be accepted and internalized.

The Data Leaders focuses on ensuring that organizations increase their desire to embrace and develop the skills necessary to manage their data assets. There is a need for an organization to drive this required change.

Data Literacy Self-Assessment

Based on our research, we determined a simple self-assessment would be of value to organizations.

Data Quality and Machine Learning Readiness Test

This “Data Quality and Machine Learning Readiness Test” is designed to help you understand the most important issues, baseline where you are, sort out which issues you must address in the short term.

This is a tremendous step forward in the Data Management Community. WE all need to be evangelist and bring clarity and definition and purpose for data management, for the implications are enormous. We are witnessing and living a new era that will propel technology to higher dimensions; but first lets enable it by properly managing data.

Nabou Dieng-Strife

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, while hoping for a different result. This manifesto beautifully outlines the commitment required to truly make sustainable change with data.

Dylan Miles

Great Idea. Collective effort will produce more results. Let our data voices be heard by speaking out and speaking in unison. The world is full of voices with opinions on what data leaders should be and do. We the data leaders should have the loudest voice in that dialogue.

Althea Davis

This is a phenomenal initiative that will hopefully start opening eyes in the leadership suites of companies around the globe. Like with any business cultural change, it will take patience and persistence, but I love how the thought leaders are beating the drum!

Don Jenkins

Data has an amazing potential to be part of the answer to improving society for us all through an increasingly insight driven world. This is a great first step to grow a Data movement to deliver an Information Revolution. #dataleaders
