My process - How I work

My process involves close collaboration with clients, from understanding their needs to delivering tailored data science solutions that drive business value. I focus on clear communication, measurable results, and continuous improvement.


I work closely with you, the client, to identify and prioritise challenges and opportunities within your business.

Through collaborative intelligence, we combine your deep understanding of your business and industry with my expertise in data solutions. This integration of knowledge allows us to tackle complex problems that may exceed the capabilities of any single individual.

We create a strategic roadmap that outlines a sequence of data solutions projects, each building upon the previous one, to unlock greater business value over time.

Included in this phase

  • Data Modelling
  • Data Entry forms
  • Data Strategy Consulting
  • Roadmap Development
  • Business Value Definition
  • Exploratory Data Analysis


Rapid prototyping transforms strategic plans into tangible solutions. This phase focuses on quick iterations, developing minimum viable products (MVPs) that address key business needs identified in the planning stage.

The process involves cycles of data loading, cleansing, preparation, and model development. Each iteration refines the solution, ensuring it aligns with business objectives and delivers immediate business value.

By prioritizing speed and flexibility, rapid prototyping allows for swift validation of concepts and early identification of potential challenges, setting the stage for more robust implementation.

Included in this phase

  • Data Asset Creation (initial). I begin building your foundational data assets, focusing on quick wins and immediate value to your business operations.
  • Minimum Viable Product (MVP) Development. My agile approach allows me to rapidly develop and iterate on MVPs, providing tangible solutions to your most pressing data needs.
  • Iterative Data Pipeline Construction. I construct initial data pipelines, continuously refining them to ensure efficient data flow and processing for your specific use cases.
  • Preliminary Dashboard Design. I create early versions of dashboards, focusing on key metrics identified in the planning phase to provide immediate insights.
  • Basic Analytics Model Development. I develop initial analytics models, laying the groundwork for more advanced analysis in later stages.
  • Rapid Feedback Loop Implementation. I establish quick feedback mechanisms to gather user input and swiftly incorporate improvements into my prototypes.
  • Proof of Concept (POC) Validation. Through rigorous testing and validation, I ensure that my prototypes effectively address your business needs before moving to full implementation.


Scalable implementation builds on the insights gained from prototyping to create robust, enterprise-grade solutions. This stage focuses on developing systems that can handle growing data volumes and integrate seamlessly with existing infrastructure.

Emphasis is placed on creating resilient architectures that can adapt to changing business needs. This includes implementing best practices for data governance, security, and performance optimization to ensure long-term sustainability

User-centric design principles are applied to ensure that solutions are intuitive and easily adopted by operational teams, maximizing the impact and value of the implemented systems.
