Setting up a team

Rhona MacLennon (Principle Solutions Architect at The Data Lab) shares her views on skills and team setup.

I also asked Rhona MacLennon (Principle Solutions Architect at The Data Lab) to share her views on skills and team setup given her experiences across many companies and industries.

I found that fascinating, specifically about the need for a hybrid team that allows you to access a broad range of skills, skills that hopefully align with what people enjoy and have an aptitude for. And it was great to hear about the different data roles and how they work together including data analyst, data engineer, data scientist and data architect.

I also liked how Rhona described some of the leadership skills required, especially about the need to galvanise & drive a team toward success. And doing it with empathy & integrity.

Did this interview clip trigger any thoughts that you would like to share?
