Course Description

Drive innovation in your organization


Despite the excitement about the new technologies and the efforts to adopt a data-driven culture, organizations fail to provide real business value. According to Gartner Research and Harvard Business Review more than 80% of Data Science projects fall short of expectations, mostly, due to lack of middle management adoption and understanding. Yet to this day, managers face the difficult task of managing new technologies that disrupt legacy practices. They have to understand the potential of their team and most importantly, when AI works, and when it does not!

In this course we equip you with the ability to lead a Data Science team and identify opportunities that can turn data into business value.
