An Intake Form for Data Requests

I very much like the idea of an "intake form" that allows the data team to create structure around how it receives requests from the rest of the org, and I think this concise post is very worth reading.

I do get the sense that the author (of whom I think highly) is operating a data-as-a-service org, which relies on customers filing requests and getting analyses back. I generally see modern data teams migrating towards data-as-a-product, where the handoff is the data model, not the data analysis. All that to say, you might want to consider how you would adapt this tactic based on how your team interacts with its customers.
