30 Jan 2003 18 Information Management Framework Roles and Responsibilities
19 Underlying approach v These guidelines include common names for roles, with clear definition of responsibilities.
20 Clear responsibilities - Shared Vocabulary v Sharing of business knowledge through a shared vocabulary. v The actual choice of words is far less important for information access than the fact that similar items are brought together. v The term an expert will use is often different to the term used by a novice. Neither one is correct, nor is it incorrect. v For the purposes of business intelligence, it is essential that when one part of the organisation uses a term (‘Data Manager’ for example), it is understood in the same way across the department.
