What makes things more complex is the fact that the roles in the organization between the application-focused Agile groups and the data-focused methodologies groups are not the same. While frequently the project manager is the center of the Agile universe, connecting the sides of business and technology development, the data organization is the center of the data methodology universe, connecting the roles of data scientists, data engineer, business analyst, data analyst, and the line of business. Frequently the language of communication is not the same, with Agile sprints focused on functions and features, and data “sprints” focused on data sources, data cleansing, and data models. Clearly the two parts of the organization serve the same overall master so we need to combine these two approaches into a cohesive whole that provides organizations the power they need to deliver AI projects reliably.
