Event description

Description

This is a 1 day on-site course held in Central London near to London Bridge Station in a small group of circa 10 people mixing scenario solving, new tools and processes and a project planning approach that Ian has developed over several years of client-based team coaching.

"Ian's expertise and experience were essential to the development of our fledgling data science team. He played a fundamental role in defining our ways of working and mentoring junior members, as well as leading multiple projects with internal clients. I can't recommend working with him highly enough!" - Cyprian Rangel, Data Science Product Manager at QBE Insurance

This course is aimed at any Pythonic data scientist who:

  • has had a difficult project delivery and wants more confidence in their process
  • believes that their team could work more efficiently - if only they knew what to change
  • wants to know what a good Definition of Done looks like
  • wants to accelerate their own career and leadership potential

During the course we'll:

  • work through scenarios building up some Project Plans (built out of Ian's experience) that define what we know, what we need, risks and milestones so that you could confidently start work on these projects
  • review best practice and the approaches used by successful teams which you can take back to your team
  • use new data science tools that'll assist with Exploratory Data Analysis and project derisking that will have an up-front impact on your new projects
  • review the tools and practices used by everyone in the room (you're free to observe if you don't want to participate) to share the good experiences and identify problems that can fixed
  • work through any questions you've brought along from your team
  • use a Slack channel to share results which you can continue to use after the course

"Ian coached our team when we needed some extra technical firepower, and provided that in spades. He slipped into a role providing technical leadership to a new bunch of people, and energised every project to which he contributed. He also straightened our path towards best practice, with a combination of good sense and business experience, for which generations of my team will be grateful" - Alice Jacques, Senior Data Scientist at Channel 4

After the course you'll:

  • have a Project Plan that you've built-up during the course to take back to apply to your own challenges
  • have gained answers to the questions you arrived with, so your personal blockers will be resolved
  • have a plan for new tools and processes to introduce at work to make your team more efficient
  • have access to our Slack channel to continue the conversation with class mates and to download any shared material
  • receive a Certificate of Professional Development

You have some prior experience with Python and data science tools like Jupyter Notebooks and Pandas. You might be a data scientist or a hands-on data science team lead.

This course is not aimed at first-time Python users who want to learn about data science. This is aimed at practitioners who have worked on a data science project and who want to get better results, faster and with more confidence.

You'll need your laptop with Anaconda installed with Python 3.6+. I'll check-in with you before the course to make sure you have everything you need installed. You can also install before the class by arriving earlier.

If you have questions please contact Ian@MorConsulting.com. Ian's blog has a long list of past public talks and videos.

Location:

Prospero House is a dedicated training facility 5 minutes walk south of London Bridge station, opposite Borough tube station (on the Northern Line). It is easily reached from Kings Cross, Paddington and Victoria. The venue has tea and coffee and snacks all day, light continental breakfast for early arrivals, natural daylight and air conditioning.

Lunch is included in the price, options include vegetarian/meat/fish and other diets may be accommodated (please contact me if you have dietary requirements). I've visited the venue and eaten their lunch - this location is ideal for a great day's training.
