To foster a data culture, we developed a data acumen quick reference. The quick reference highlights key data skills and data knowledge needed for common functions (e.g., data science, data stewardship, data architecture, records management, data engineering) at all levels of an organization (i.e., for everyone, for staff, for managers, and for executives) across the data lifecycle from creation to retirement. It isn’t meant to be prescriptive but convey the importance of data acumen (or literacy) across the organization and to help practitioners better understand data management skills and needed agency data knowledge.
