The essential guide for data scientists and for leaders who must
get more from their data science teams The Economist boldly claims
that data are now "the world's most valuable resource." But, as
Kenett and Redman so richly describe, unlocking that value requires
far more than technical excellence. The Real Work of Data Science
explores understanding the problems, dealing with quality issues,
building trust with decision makers, putting data science teams in
the right organizational spots, and helping companies become
data-driven. This is the work that spells the difference between a
good data scientist and a great one, between a team that makes
marginal contributions and one that drives the business, between a
company that gains some value from its data and one in which data
truly is "the most valuable resource." "These two authors are
world-class experts on analytics, data management, and data
quality; they've forgotten more about these topics than most of us
will ever know. Their book is pragmatic, understandable, and
focused on what really counts. If you want to do data science in
any capacity, you need to read it." --Thomas H. Davenport,
Distinguished Professor, Babson College and Fellow, MIT Initiative
on the Digital Economy "I like your book. The chapters address
problems that have faced statisticians for generations, updated to
reflect today's issues, such as computational Big Data." --Sir
David Cox, Warden of Nuffield College and Professor of Statistics,
Oxford University "Data science is critical for competitiveness,
for good government, for correct decisions. But what is data
science? Kenett and Redman give, by far, the best introduction to
the subject I have seen anywhere. They address the critical
questions of formulating the right problem, collecting the right
data, doing the right analyses, making the right decisions, and
measuring the actual impact of the decisions. This book should
become required reading in statistics and computer science
departments, business schools, analytics institutes and, most
importantly, by all business managers." --A. Blanton Godfrey,
Joseph D. Moore Distinguished University Professor, Wilson College
of Textiles, North Carolina State University
