“Data science is the most important skill of marketers in the 21st-century” – Marc Mathieu, CMO of Samsung
3As it stands, data science is a skill of a select few in the marketing community, basically a form of intellectual elitism. As a result, there is a wide gap between data scientists and everyone else. Not only this is an issue regarding what marketers are able to do themselves, but also a communication problem. Because senior marketers do not share the same language with data scientists, they are not able to communicate directly with arguably their most elite troops. Marketing leaders are limited by their ability to understand what is possible, and in terms of their ability to clearly articulate their aspirations. There is also an important risk related with talent; the best data scientists prefer to work in organizations and fields with genuine embrace of their practice.
