A data set journey maps the steps, owners, tools, source systems and transformations for a data set to reach the consumers.
It is a great activity for fostering conversations about a data set and its transformations. It is very useful to make it visible the overall data set journey with all the steps and transformations.
Step by step
- Ask the participants to represent the step by step of a data set takes from its first appearance until it reaches the consumers
- For each step, add notes under it for a few categories; for example: owners, tools, source systems and transformations (consider renaming the categories for your specific context)
- Review it and then decide to either move to the next activity or to build another data set journey
