Most organizations believe they will achieve better analytic results if they populate a deeper bench of experienced data scientists and machine learning practitioners. But this is akin to building a home exclusively with highly skilled framers, brick layers and cabinet makers. You’ll end up with a solid structure and great workmanship, but not a true functional home.
Beyond technical construction skill, building a home successfully requires understanding the owners’ needs and preferences, careful site selection, architecture, design, planning, proper resourcing, project oversight, effective presentation and finishing.
It’s these kinds of strategic tasks that most organizations overlook at their peril. They typically end up with accurate models and some interesting insights -- that fall short of arriving at real value that is measurable, accountable, purposeful, understandable, operationable, impactful and adoptable for residual gain.
In this Ask the Expert webinar, The Modeling Agency’s Keith McCormick will define the specific roles that should collaborate and function at specific times across a full analytic project implementation. Keith will then answer any questions you have about a goal-driven organizational analytic team.
