Steering Committee meeting notes
Data governance committee
The data governance committee consists of the Data Stewards for all of the subject areas. This committee sets priorities for the formation of task forces, establishes accountability, monitors task force progress, and develops best practices, metrics, and methodologies for data quality. The Data Governance Manager, Matt Hoying, will be coordinating with this committee. More information on data governance at Stanford is available here.
Not yet formed.
Task forces for data quality
These task forces are led by the Data Stewards and populated by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). A task force in a particular data area identifies metrics for monitoring data quality, assigns responsibility for data quality, and adjusts business practices or ERP systems to improve and maintain data quality. SMEs are, ideally, the people who understand the whole cycle of data from input through reporting though SMEs may consult with specialized experts in their organization to assist with understanding the details of specific data fields or ERP functions.

Focus groups for metrics & dashboards
These are less formal groups of people interviewed (individually or in groups) for the purpose of gathering subject-specific information needed to identify metrics and dimensions for executive and management level reporting. These groups may overlap with Subject Matter Experts and Data Stewards involved in data quality, but will also include heavy users of information.
