Course description

Data Science for Technical Managers

Managers of data science teams are faced with the difficult task of managing a new and often poorly understood field.  To be effective, managers must both understand the nature of their team’s work and translate it into business impact. They are responsible for scoping potential projects and managing the non-deterministic workflow of a data science team.  Furthermore, they must be able to translate the details of their team’s work and its impact to nontechnical stakeholders.

In this course we equip data science managers with the ability to manage their team, make nuanced decisions on project direction, and communicate the impact back effectively.

  • Identify appropriate projects for a data science solution
  • Manage the end-to-end life cycle of a data science project, from scoping through monitoring and expiration
