As more organizations recognize the power of data to transform their decision making (or for it to become a product in its own right), the role of the Chief Data Officer has become critical.

So what are the biggest challenges facing every good CDO? And where do data science teams intersect with that work?

In this episode, Dave Cole is joined by Heidi Lanford, Chief Data Officer at Fitch Group, to discuss strategies for cultivating partnerships between data science leaders and the Chief Data Officer.

They also explored questions such as:

  • What is the role of a CDO?
  • What does “data as a product” mean?
  • How can the CDO enable others to deliver insights?
  • How do you start a data literacy program?
  • What’s the deal with “citizen data scientists?”
