A Data Science Manager, apart from having knowledge in data science, should drive strategic initiatives for the business and also collaborate with the product team. A DSM should set the vision and identify the best growth path while also selling the value your team brings in to the company. For people wanting to get into the role, it's important to have completed at least one end-to-end project to provide you with the much-needed hands-on approach while solving problems using data in your organization.
