Vincent,

I recently was hired as a data scientist. As a new hire, leading the department of Business Intelligence, I am faced with self-posed questions such as, "What do I need to accomplish in the first 5 days?" And, "What should I accomplish in the first month?" And, of course, "How do I develop a long-term plan for transforming the business into a data-driven organization?" To make the problem of determining how I should focus my attention even more complicated, I have a single employee whom I want to groom to understand the algorithms that I am implementing. Also, I have a CEO who only agreed to hire for this position because the CIO, CFO, and COO encouraged him to do so, but he is highly skeptical of what data science can do for the organization; this complicates matters too because it puts on me a pressure to be dazzling right out-of-the-box. 

I have given these questions considerable thought. I am on day 3 of my new job. I have decided to orient myself on the business' data, query tools, and self-service tools, such as QlikView. I have so many ideas, I have difficulty in choosing a single direction in which I should run. I must note that I want to be significantly impactful while minimizing disruptions in the business' daily functions. To that end, I keep thinking, "run a clustering analysis! Discover the patterns and trends in the company's data to begin the model-building process."

What advice would you give a young data scientist on his 4th day on the job (as it is for me, tomorrow)?

Hello Vincent, 

Thanks for the connection. I would like to ask you a question, when I joined here my BIO states (To understand the building blocks based on natural data transfer.) it's very good I like that, but could you tell me how my BIO was achieved? Was it (A) human input or (B) machine?
