How to Prepare for the Tidal Wave of Chief Data Officer Jobs

HBR: “The sexiest job of the 21st Century”

In 2012, the Harvard Business Review named the Chief Data Scientist as the ‘sexiest job of the 21st Century’. 

Just last month, one of the co-authors of that article, D.J. Patil, was named the first-ever Chief Data Scientist of the U.S. This followed France’s announcement in 2014, when they became the first country ever to appoint a Chief Data Officer.

Why the tidal wave of C-level data roles, and how can you capitalize on the gold rush? Tomorrow I’ll be speaking at SXSW on exactly that: “How to Prepare for the Tidal Wave of Big Data Jobs.

Even better, today I posted the most recent resources, reports, and articles on this hot topic. 
In addition to insightful articles from our partners Capgemini and Elsevier, the post includes links to:
