While Alok Gupta (Doordash) describes how data scientists might assess the potential impact of a project, Caitlin Moorman (Trove Recommerce) proposes an approach for evaluating the actual impact of the data team on a broad set of stakeholders using surveys. She recommends beginning with a set of simple questions that are applicable to most survey recipients and centered on the data team’s key focus areas. In addition, she suggests including a set of questions on recent or upcoming changes in tooling, training, or support; and space for open-ended feedback. She also provides recommendations for survey cadence, design, and analysis to increase the likelihood that the team takes appropriate action in response to what they’ve learned.
