Style Guide

n.

Pronunciation

/staɪl gaɪd/

Definition

A set of rules designed to govern the best practices for data management and design.

A style guide is an important component in data governance. Style guides are typically arranged at the beginning of a project with all involved stakeholders to ensure consistency across the board. Throughout the duration of the project, analysts and other designers will reference the style guide for preferences on label length, how many children nodes deep can a parent node have, and so on. The style guide is a living document that is updated as stylistic issues become apparent.
