Executive Summary

This document provides a response to the National Data Strategy (NDS). We have consulted widely with data practitioners across government to review the NDS. The NDS is welcomed, but in its current form it will not achieve what it should and is missing significant areas. As practitioners we value a high-level view that encapsulates breadth and direction of purpose and have adapted the NDS framework diagram accordingly, so that it reflects outcomes not organisations. Further discovery workshops to broaden the NDS would be a mistake, "delivery is the strategy" and moving to action with practitioners to resolve omissions and issues is the better mitigation.
