Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video Rely on serendipity, part of Data Science Teams: Doing Agile Data Science.
- You've seen that it can be difficult…to have clearly defined objectives…with your data science team.…Still many organizations find it difficult…to even imagine working without clear objectives.…You see objectives everywhere.…Almost every management book talks about…how to set objectives.…You set career objectives.…Even when you're training,…there are clearly defined learning objectives.…These objectives guide much of what we do,…but they might not be as valuable as you think.…There's been some interesting work…in this area over the last few years.…

This course shows how to structure your work within a two-week sprint. See how to work within a data science life cycle (DSLC)—a methodology for cycling through questions, research, and reporting every two weeks. Explore key practices to help your team break down the work so it fits within a two-week sprint. Learn how to use tools like question boards to encourage discussion and find essential questions. And most importantly, learn how to grow your team's shared knowledge and avoid common pitfalls.
