The data team: a short story (via) Erik Bernhardsson’s fictional account (“I guess I should really call this a parable”) of a new data team leader successfully growing their team and building a data-first culture in a medium-sized technology company. His depiction of the initial state of the company (data in many different places, frustrated ML researchers who can’t get their research into production, confusion over what the data team is actually for) definitely rings true to me.
