Job #1 for Data Science leaders right now is: framing and narrative.

Executives don’t have a long history of AI investment outcomes to reference.

Customers haven’t implemented many AI applications in the real world.

Serving our executive teams and customers, means we…

Explicitly frame how to think about AI investments and what to expect.

Balance realism and enthusiasm (both important!) with clear narratives that show how we get from today’s realities to tomorrow’s big vision.

Clear framing and narrative is always our job as leaders. And right now, it’s more important than ever.
