THE UNEASY MARRIAGE OF DATA SCIENCE AND OPERATIONS

THU 11:15 - 11:45

This is a 2017 presentation

Every company is talking about the potential of big data analytics, but the difference between success and failure often depends on how well the models integrate into operational processes. In this talk we will explore how we integrated data science into existing operations and challenges encountered when transforming an organization. Specific themes:

  • Gathering human operational insight and integrating into models
  • Overcoming organizational inertia/resistance
  • Developing a fast, functional feedback loop for model improvement
  • Building necessary data science understanding amongst non-technical teams
