Team Data Science Process project planning

The Team Data Science Process (TDSP) provides a lifecycle to structure the development of your data science projects.

The lifecycle outlines the major stages that projects typically execute, often iteratively:

  • Business Understanding
  • Data Acquisition and Understanding
  • Modeling
  • Deployment
  • Customer Acceptance

For descriptions of each of these stages, see The Team Data Science Process lifecycle.
