Interesting perspective on data science "leaders" leaving https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-data-science-leaders-running-exit-edward-chenard/
. The three main points from the article I took were
- PhD's aren't trained traditionally to create work based on business requirements so aren't well equipped to produce the results you might expect (Being a PhD student myself in a data driven field, this is a nice reminder in case I want to go to industry :smile:)
- Managing data science teams is MUCH different from doing data science so if you're given a management position, ask yourself if you'll like it
- Agile methods for software development are necessarily the best for producing data driven insights.
