Every data scientist wants to spend their time playing with data and creating the best model. We focus on learning about statistics, algorithms and machine learning techniques in our studies at school and many data science forums and meet-ups are centered around the next best modeling approach. But then why do many data scientists struggle to actually provide value to their companies? And why do many companies struggle to understand how their data scientists are providing value? Based on my experience as a data scientist and data science leader at different companies, I have found that the trick to providing value to the business is actually not about the modeling at all.
