Upcoming discussion calls for Team Structure and Buidling a Backlog for data science leads

I ran another Executives at PyData discussion session for 50+ leaders at our PyDataLondon conference a couple of weeks back. We had great conversation which dug into a lot of topics. I’ve written up notes on my NotANumber newsletter. If you’re a leader of DS and Data Eng teams, you probably want to review those notes.

To follow on the conversations I’m going to run the following two (free) Zoom based discussion sessions. I’ll be recording the calls and adding notes to future newsletters. If you’d like to join, fill in this invite form and I can add you to the calendar invite. You can lurk and listen or – better – join in with questions.

  • Monday July 11, 4pm (UK time), Data Science Team Structure – getting a good structure for your org, hybrid vs fully remote practices, processes that support your team, how to avoid being left out
  • Monday August 8th, 4pm (UK time), Backlog & Derisking & Estimation – how to build a backlog, derisking quickly and estimating the value behind your project

I’m expecting a healthy list of issues and good feedback and discussion for both calls. I’ll be sharing an agenda in advance to those who have contacted me. My goal is to turn these into bigger events in the future.
