Modernizing Your Analytics and Data Science Organization

A recurring theme among analytics and data science leaders is the concern of not being able to keep up with all of the rapid change taking place – both individually and as a team. In years past, it was possible to stand up an organization largely made up of analytics generalists who would handle initiatives end to end. In today’s world, it is necessary to utilize a range of specialists focused on either specific methods or specific points in the lifecycle of an analytics and data science initiative. This talk will discuss the trends driving the need to evolve your organization’s talent model, new roles you need to consider implementing, and how they all fit together.
