Smarter data people build analytics capability through soft skills.
Data scientists, decision scientists, analytics professionals, all of them prosper and flourish when they
- work across organisational boundaries (down with silos!)
- understand the business context and know what’s most important (yes, work on that important thing first!) so they know what to say yes to
- say no to the other stuff, so it feels like a yes (keep stakeholders happier: partners not adversaries).
- harness curiosity, ask great questions, listen with interest to find the right problems to solve
Building analytics capability has an entry price – brilliant technical minds with excellent skills in the technical.
And the smartest data people have more than that.
