This assignment will culminate the material covered regarding the six phases of the Data Analytics Life Cycle.
You are to prepare a quality presentation backed by a written script that clarifies why it is so important to follow something like the Data Analytics Life Cycle.
Here is the context: Imagine that this presentation is being delivered to organizational leaders. You are trying to make a case for why the organization should have a data analytics mindset, why data projects are so important, and a process for how all data projects should be managed. Your presentation should include:
- The importance of adopting a data analytics mindset
- A detailed process for working with stakeholders, both to gather requirements and to communicate results
- Why it is important that the data analyst understand the business implications of the data project
- The process of gathering resources and data to ensure that the project can be completed properly
- The use of a sandbox to build a model that can then be implemented to address the data problem or opportunity
- A method for operationalizing the solution
Each data project is different, so these points may need to be addressed from a general perspective since you are not addressing a specific challenge or opportunity.
Your Fawcett and Provost text might be a good place to get some of the information you will need, but you can (and should) turn to other sources to help support your argument. Please consult 3-5 external sources to help you make your case. You want to put forward a well-supported case for a new approach to data projects.
Your presentation should have at least 10 slides, all of which need to be well-formatted and informative. Each slide should have accompanying text to either put into the notes part of the slide or on a separate document. The text needs to be complete and fully explanatory to help make your case.
Separate from the 10 slides should b a cover slide showing the 3-5 references you consulted to make your case and build your presentation. Those references should be listed in APA format.
Your grade will depend on the quality of the presentation and the completeness of the text that accompanies each slide. Together, these should make a compelling argument for adopting an analytics mindset governed by a data analytics life cycle.
