Starting a Data Science practice on a non-digitally native organization: 5 things you should know.

Starting a Data Science practice on a non-digitally native organization can result in a frustrating experience for a Data Scientist who envisions his role being the same to that of a Data Scientist who works for a fully data-driven or digitally-native organization.

During the session, I will go over 5 key things that have helped create a successful and powerful data science team in a century-old organization with limited digital dexterity and a long road ahead of their digital transformation journey.

The session hopes to inspire and inform emerging Data Scientists of some challenges that this profession will face as more and more organizations set-up formal data science practices. This is also meant to share some learning and best practices with emerging Data Science leaders or people in charge of leading a Data Science team.
