There has been much attention given to the data scientist role in analytics, but the real hero in a data-driven environment is the person or persons who can explain not only what the analytic results are but what they mean to the enterprise.
A data interpreter is the storyteller for the executive suite of the company. He or she can translate technical analytical results and visualizations into meaningful business terms with a compelling story behind the algorithms and graphs. We know that every picture tells a story, but not everyone can create the story behind the graph. These business-savvy storytellers vet the analytical results and bring them to life in captivating ways that leave the C-suite with a clear path forward and a call to action.
Attendees will learn:
- Description and skill set of the data interpreter
- Examples of data interpretation
- Getting started as a data interpreter
