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
  1. 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:)
  2. 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
  3. Agile methods for software development are necessarily the best for producing data driven insights.

Yeah good read. I believe your third point is “aren’t*”. Thanks for the share. @erictleung
