Here's how one company built its data science operation

“When Francesco Bovoli, vice president of program management and infrastructure for Workshare, was tasked with building a new data science organization for the company, he set a clear goal. "My objective was I want to make sure this is a data driven organization. I defined that by saying I want product managers to base more than half their decisions on numbers, not guts," he said. Using your gut and experience is still crucial, but using real data to back it up will drive better results, he said.”
