In this second co-hosted episode, Karen and Cecilia discuss cross-functional collaboration, building on episode 76 with Wendy Lynch.
They talk about Wendy’s role as an Analytics Translator, which particularly resonated with Cecilia – bridging the gap between technical and non-technical teams that do not always fully understand each other’s work. The pair also consider examples of when strained working relationships with other teams get in the way of good business outcomes. How can this can be overcome, leading to greater impact and better personal relationships? Finally, Karen and Cecilia ponder how to answer the classic question of what you do for a living to non-data experts.
