"The most important thing is to keep the most important thing the most important thing."

  – From the book “Foundation design”, by Coduto, Donald P.

'PhD is not only a certificate, PhD is also an experience. Experience and extensive training on research, collaboration, team-work, time management, coping with stress and communication with stakeholders. PhD is equivalent to 5-6 years of industrial experience on systematic thinking, problem solving, data analysis, visualization and results generation. PhD tells you that this candidate needs minimum supervision, have a make-it work attitude and I-can-solve-it perspective.

A PhD holder is someone who worked on a complex problem for years, analyzed data for years, squeezed hidden results from hard data and worked hard to convince committee members and the research community of his findings. Writing one SCI (ISI) journal is harder than thousands of 2-pages report. To put it simply, when hiring a data scientist, do not ask them if they knows Tableau or not. Do not ask them about if they knows python or not. They can learn a tool in a week, a programming language in one month.'
