One of the most important tasks for a data science team is understanding stakeholder needs and communicating results with non-technical teams. It can be challenging to accomplish these tasks when it seems like you are speaking different languages

How do you effectively determine the best way to deliver analytical results to the rest of the business? What are some techniques you can use to break down complicated machine learning techniques and algorithms?

This talk will review methods to effectively communicate with stakeholders throughout the entirety of a project - from the planning stages to delivering results. You will learn important questions to ask at the beginning of a project to ensure that you are aligned with stakeholders and how to provide the appropriate deliverable.
