Session description

There is no question that reskilling/hiring is on every organisation's agenda in their goal to become data-driven. But how do you determine who should be reskilled/hired and when (HR, IT, Data Scientists, Engineers, Senior Management)? What are the common barriers to reskilling/hiring (internal vs external barriers)? Who should bear the cost of reskilling? How does one quantify the effect of reskilling? In the keynote, we will explore some of the questions mentioned here in more depth and try to develop an awareness around what it takes to build a successful reskilling/hiring strategy.
