As the only data scientist at my company, I appreciate and identify with the points made in this article.
One thing I would add is the skill to manage expectations and even manage up. Chances are good that in a small company the analytics group is not very mature and does not know fundamental concepts that are taken for granted within the data culture of a larger enterprise.
Also, that stock photo in the article directly applies to some work I am doing on Indoor Positioning and workplace analytics. I would love to hear more about that if the selection was at all relevant.
