Sending your entire team to train at a conference has many benefits and can result in improved outcomes for both individual team members and the organization as a whole. From sharing knowledge to team building, the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts. Check out the seven benefits of data science team training below.
Attending the conference as a team gives you the opportunity to ensure that your entire team is able to strengthen at least one skill set together. At the end of the conference, they will be up-to-date in the latest tools and trends and have a shared vocabulary with which to discuss their projects, making sure that nothing gets lost in translation.
Divide and Conquer:
Alternatively, you could choose to have your team pursue different avenues of study, and as a unit, return to the office with a wide breadth of knowledge to share with each other. You will also have an increased chance that at least one member of your team will be able to address whatever issue or roadblock arises.
A conference is also the perfect opportunity to help your team build camaraderie and become more cohesive during data science team training. In the more relaxed environment of the conference, they learn more about each other’s lives outside of work and create fun experiences and memories.
If any of your team members are a little on the introverted side, sending the whole team can help them feel more comfortable networking with peers from other organizations and potential clients, while also helping them improve their soft skills.
Experience More of the Conference:
Between training sessions, workshops, talks, the AI Expo and Demo Hall, and the extra events, ODSC East offers more than what one person can fully experience. If you send your whole team, they can target different areas and, as a whole, spend more time at partner booths and events for a more in-depth experience.
Reduce Out of Office Time:
Sending your whole team to ODSC East will also help you reduce out-of-office time. Although all projects will be paused during the conference, the next week, your team will return with new skills and ready to tackle their work. If you send only one or two members at a time, however, you will have several weeks where your team is understaffed and work is affected.
Finally, upskilling your entire team at ODSC East can help you save money in the long run. For one, it reduces the need to hire new people to fill skill gaps, saving your organization the cost of recruiting and hiring new staff in a tight labor market.
