Data science is not a science project

“You need to have a clear problem identified that you are ready to tackle with analytics, and you need to know what data you will use to solve that problem.

Start small, with a project that addresses a core competency of the business.

Select a project that will offer a win within a year.

Look for opportunities to automate and expand your use of analytics.”
