Have you ever had the perfect data science experience? The data pull went perfectly. There were no merging errors or missing data. Hypotheses were clearly defined prior to analyses. Randomization was performed for the treatment of interest. The analytic plan was outlined prior to analysis and followed exactly. The conclusions were clear and actionable decisions were obvious. Has that every happened to you? Of course not. Data analysis in real life is messy. How does one manage a team facing real data analyses? In this one-week course, we contrast the ideal with what happens in real life. By contrasting the ideal, you will learn key concepts that will help you manage real life analyses.

TOP REVIEWS FROM DATA SCIENCE IN REAL LIFE
Clear explanation of various concepts with good examples. Of course, reference to some cool cartoons from time to time made the concepts more memorable!
I like that this course examples the many ways an experiment/analysis can go wrong and how to address these issues. Very practical for the practitioner.
Highly educational course on the realities of data analysis. Many good tips for your own analyses as well as for managing others responsible for coherent and accurate analyses.
Slightly difficult for non data science background people, but is manageable to have a dip into this course and stimulate a "real life" experiences shared by course insructor.
