I have talked in the past about data science coaching. It is a new concept that blends together aspects of business coaching and data science consultancy. Data science is unique in the tech world, because it directly interacts with the business model. This means that it often starts at the executive level, and not in the tech department.
The data science coach is a role that comes to cover this gap. Its focus is on explaining to decision makers how data science should be implemented within a company, in order to maximise business value.
This idea has largely been based on my work with the Tesseract Academy, through which I have run multiple workshops for executives from small to big organisations. In this episode I talk about data science coaching, and I explain why I believe many organisations need it.
