I have extensively worked with data science/research teams. One of the challenges I found was that the teams typically worked in a explorative fashion and failed to meet time-bound goals.

Also it is important for the data scientist to know their customers to be able propose solutions. So I worked in devising how design thinking and data science work can be coupled to deliver results.

In the talk, I would like to show the entire lifecyle of what we developed at, Zalando SE, which is europe's leading fashion e-commerce platform, to deliver data products.


Outline/Structure of the Talk

  • Data Products
  • Challenges the Data Scientists teams face
  • How we created a roadmap for changes
  • What we achieved

Learning Outcome

The session would aim showing

  • How Agile is not just meant for traditional software development
  • Importance of involving engineers at the time of discovery, than just passing on the requirements
