Career Decisions, Management, and Leadership in a Data and AI World: Part 2/4 Leading an Impactful Data Team
In this second webinar of our series on “Career Decisions, Management, and Leadership in a Data and AI World”, Sanjeevan Bala and Gilad Lotan, two data leaders who have created highly effective data organizations – both now in the media space, one for a “digital native” company and the other for a “traditional” player, but with past different industry experiences – will explain what profiles they have hired into their team and why; how they have deployed these resources in the organisation; how their team structures and priorities have evolved over time; how they collaborate effectively with their stakeholders in business and engineering teams; and how their own backgrounds have influenced their leadership style.
