Data science is among the most misunderstood fields in today’s professional landscape. The lack of basic understanding around the practice and application of data science means it’s difficult for organizational leaders to understand what data science is, why it’s important, and how to build a strategy around it.

Science + Data is a rigorous framework sculpted by Calligo’s data science team, which has nearly two decades of experience practicing data science and applying it to a variety of fields. This framework, which includes 8 Steps and 9 Skills, articulates how data science should be practiced, and is incorporated within a business context. It also identifies the technical, scientific, and business skills that are associated with properly executing each step of the cycle.
