Interview with Justin Smith

How to Set Your Data Scientists up for Success

Data teams are used to working in a dynamic environment. But as digital transformation strategies mature, how can data and analytics leaders be sure that their ‘brightest and best’ are engaged in work they are passionate about?

When St. Luke’s Health System Senior Director of Advanced Analytics Justin Smith Ph.D. is hiring he always looks for people with a philosophy of lifelong learning.



“Who’s going to [push the organization forward]? It will probably be your data science teams, because that’s where the knowledge is,” Smith says. “But how do you bring along those individuals in your organization that are interested? They’re the lifelong learners you want to try and identify and grow.”

 Justin Smith Ph.D. shares his ideas on keeping data scientists engaged and working on projects that inspire passion.

“Data teams have access to a tremendous amount of information. Engaging them is as simple as asking what cool things they’re seeing in the data. That should spark their interest because data scientists are curious beings. We need to be able to explore and make new things,” Smith says.
