The CDO Playbook offers a strategic guide for Chief Data Officers in federal agencies, detailing key practices for effective data management and utilization. The CDO Council’s Data Skills Working Group (WG) created this playbook of four key “plays”, which draw from successful practices in both industry and government.

The CDO Playbook is essential for federal data leaders as it provides actionable insights on establishing data governance frameworks, fostering a data-centric culture, and leveraging data for decision-making and innovation. The Playbook’s emphasis on collaboration, compliance, and data literacy helps CDOs drive organizational transformation, improve service delivery, and enhance transparency. By following these guidelines, CDOs can maximize the value of data assets, ensuring they contribute effectively to their agency’s mission and objectives.
