5 Types of Data in Feedback

In this blog, I will be discussing some distinct types of data involved in feedback. The types that I will be covering are as follows: 1) structural; 2) event; 3) quantitative; 4) contextual; and 5) systemic.

The Awkward Road

This blog is about the peculiar nature in which software sometimes gets developed. I hope that many readers will recognize the relevance of data science in the examples taken from my own projects. I propose that development is the product of creativity more than accreditation. Creativity is something complicated that interacts with a person over his or her life circumstances.

Data Scientists: Do You Want to Deliver More Than Business as Usual Workforce Insights?

Your firm is awash in workforce data and your team of data scientists have been charged with making sense of it and extracting meaningful insights the business can use. How do you do this? There are many different approaches to analyzing workforce data to choose from but the amount of relevant insight yielded really depends on the goals of the analysis.

If the goal is to take more of a traditional approach to workforce analytics, where the same datasets are massaged to try to squeeze…
