Analytics Translator
Workshops that bring data science to your organisation

Bring data science to your organisation

You probably know the famous statistic about most data science projects failing. Maybe you even have this experience or have seen it happen around you. We believe the role of analytics translator is a vital part of any organisation wanting this to change. There is a lot of power in data and the use of it. Bringing this to life is much easier when business and data professionals are aligned. An analytics translator is exactly the right type of person to make this happen.

Blog: You don't have enough Analytics Translators, here's why that's a problem
I often get asked the question ‘Why do AI projects fail?’ As a data science consultant, I’ve seen a variety of organizations struggle to make AI work for them.

The data product lifecycle, characterized by three distinct phases: ideation, experimentation and industrialization.

The Analytics Translator job description

Any data-related project has to go through some form of the project funnel above. In each stage the business goals and technical possibilities need to be evaluated to decide on whether and how to continue. Data and business people can bring the required expertise, but to make the process effective someone needs to ensure they share a language and framework. This is effectively the job description of an analytics translator.

"Being able to translate findings from analytics is not a specific role per se, but a capability that must be nurtured and harnessed within all current-day employees. Complimentary to elementary school having taught you how to read and write, this workshop will make you become data literate and enable you to share your learnings with others. Enjoy!"
