As data analytics becomes more and more recognized and valued in companies, companies are (starting to) develop their own data science teams. In a recent study , we found that the analytics teams are in general relatively small but growing. This means that companies need to start thinking about how they will organize this team. There are several important elements which come into play here. The necessary resources (software, hardware, trainings) need to be available and management needs to work hard on establishing a culture driven by data in order to truly capture its potential and not scare away motivated data scientists. In this blog post we will zoom in on two other important perspectives of analytics (as specifically mentioned in the DELTA framework ), namely leadership and the organizational perspective. Thirdly, we will shortly discuss an alternative concept which is gaining traction, the citizen data scientist.
