Skills and Requirements of Data Science

Data science is the process of asking meaningful questions, and getting answers, from data.  By that definition quality professionals are, and always have been, data scientists. This presentation examines the breadth of skills and requirements for data scientists from the perspective of the quality professional. Based on observations from consulting in both quality and data science fields, four types of data scientists will be described in detail: the strategist, the boundary spanner, the applications ninja, and the communicator or storyteller. Quality professionals need not feel proficient in all forms of data science. By understanding these areas, quality professionals can identify new opportunities for professional development that naturally leverage their strengths and career histories.
