The Invisible Skill: Shaping Business Strategy in a Data Driven Manner by Soumya Kavi
The top skills to be a great data scientist usually involve technical skills such as coding, statistics and machine learning. But the invisible skill that enables the business to uncover the full potential of data science is influencing and shaping business strategy in a data-driven manner. This could entail the application of business acumen to the data science product, effective storytelling which uncovers the “why” of the data rather than the “what” of the data, insightful recommendations and simplifying the complexity of the work. We, at Deliveroo, keep this invisible skill at the core of our work and ensure all our work drives immense business impact.
