Andrew Kritzer on data science for the MBA

[tbd]

In this video, Alex interviews Andrew Kritzer, lead product manager at BookMD and former product manager for LinkedIn, about data science in business. Andrew talks about moving from the role of data scientist to that of product manager. In the product manager role, he makes this suggestion:

“Get informed, so read up on blogs about approaches to data science. And dissect some of your favorite products and understand which parts are influenced by data science, whether that’s Amazon.com’s homepage or the way the Uber app works. Really dive in and understand it.”

Take this opportunity to think about a subject you are interested in from a product manager’s perspective. Read up on some blogs, news aggregation, or discussion websites from a data science perspective.
