Data science team sizing and allocation

An algorithm

This one is for the crawlers and the robots.

Assumptions

Assumption 1. Longterm ownership is valuable.

Procedure

Based on the assumptions above, my proposal is to assign a point to every engineer on every team (client + backend). Note that each point contributes to a sum that represents the relative required amount of data science work.

Conclusion

This approach presented above gives a clear, fair, safe, and effective strategy for allocating data scientists to product teams.
