Building Successful Data Science Projects
Your data science projects haven’t worked out so well – maybe you didn’t have a plan, you suffered from surprising unknowns, you couldn’t deliver what was promised or you just failed to ship. I’ve been there over the last 20 years.
I’ll share some painful past experiences and explain how you can avoid these common failures. I’ve just shipped a solution worth $1 million for a client by following my own advice – you can do the same.
We’ll talk about getting written agreement for a project plan, identifying risks and derisking them, validating results with the business, shipping quickly and iterating our way to success.
