This was an episode where Jansen Sullivan and Victor Anjos of the All Things Data podcast by 1000ml and I talked about data education and some of the gaps that we hope get resolved. A lot of progress is being made but lots more needs to happen.

Jansen, Victor, and myself all believe that traditional analytics education moves too slowly and is often too focused on checking boxes more than creating good data analysts, data scientists, data engineers, data product owners, etc. There is a lot of great efforts that traditional universities are working to adapt but the system lacks the agility.

Beyond the traditional education approach, the analytics space is a space that requires real projects and experience with end-to-end problems to advance people’s skills. More apprenticeship learning is required and love to see more organizations recognize this and support this.
