Stakeholder Management: A Data Scientist’s Perspective


Data science today entails much more than building a prototype model and hoping it proves useful. Making the business case for additional data sources, prioritizing against other projects and convincing stakeholders of the long term value provided are often equally if not more important than the actual technical work. Denis Fragkakis, Enterprise Data Science Lead at IG, showcases examples of disruptive projects where successful stakeholder management was the key to realizing the business value of data, and discusses how the lessons from those can be applied to any project.
