Managing Statisticians and Data Scientists

Analytics is one of the most looked for capabilities of this decade. For those of us in the field, the demand is nothing short of amazing. Everyone is looking for data scientists, statisticians, analysts, and modelers, because with them companies can lead, or even disrupt, their industry.

This enthusiasm is exciting, but, at the same time, it does present new challenges for analytical teams in hiring, managing and retaining the magical creatures that are statisticians and data scientists. How do we build teams when the talent gap is so large? How do we enable and organize the teams to truly impact the business? How do we develop and challenge our team so that they are with us for a long time? We will discuss these questions in more detail and give suggestions that you can take back to your own organization.
