Forming the Team

  • Doug Rose


Having a data science mindset is both an organizational and cultural challenge. It’s not as simple as hiring a few data analysts. You want your entire organization to think about your data in creative and interesting ways. Data analysts will help you analyze your data, but they may not be the best source of new insights. As mentioned in Chapter 6, you should think about data science as a team endeavor—small groups of people with different backgrounds experimenting with your data to create knowledge. That’s the scientific method in data science. It’s an empirical process of exploration. You’ll ask good questions, gather evidence, and try to draw conclusions.
