Technical isn't the only skill you need...

Big Picture

  • Data science that doesn't cause change is useless
  • Design - UX/UI
  • Humanities
  • Rhetoric

Buzzword - technical people sometimes hate it

But strategy matters

Your company needs a data strategy - a roadmap

Technical professionals should inform such documents :) 

We're in the communication business

Some frameworks 

Scoping: CoNVO

Context - what is the business context and model?

Need - what is the business need?

Vision -  What would a solution look like

Outcome - Training, SVP approval, etc


General: SPEACS

Search for "Design thinking Stanford"
