Scoping Data Science Projects

Presenter: Lauren Haynes and Joe Walsh (Center for Data Science and Public Policy)

Level:  All

In this interactive workshop session, we’ll walk through how to scope projects involving data, starting from identifying the problem you are trying to solve, to the actions and interventions you have to address the issue, to the data you need, to the analysis that needs to be done.

This workshop is based on several successful scoping workshops we’ve run with government agencies and non profits. More information is available at

Audience : All Levels. We’re interested in having folks that have problems to be solved and those hoping to use data to solve those problem in attendance.
