The Product Analysis group consists of a team of product analysts. This group reports to the Director of Product, Growth and serves as a specialized analytics team to support product data analysis requests. The primary customer this group serves is Product Managers from various sections/groups.
The Product Analysis group is part of the Research & Development (R&D) Data Fusion Team where the product analysts work closely with members from the central data team.
Since the Product Analysis group is a specialized analytics team, it collaborates with the Data team and Product Intelligence group very closely. Here is a quick summary of the responsbilities of each of these 3 teams:
|Team Name||DRI||Goal||Example Tasks|
|Product Analysis group||Carolyn Braza: Manager, Product Data Analysis||Perform analysis to unlock product insights when the data is available||Ad hoc product analysis, experiment analysis, Product KPI tracking, and creation and maintenance of standardized Product metric dashboards|
|Product Intelligence group||Justin Farris: Director of Product Management, Fulfillment and Product Intelligence||Define and improve capabilities of product data set||Make sure our product data set is comprehensive, available, and accurate,and that team members are enabled to create new instrumentation, charts, and dashboards in a self-service fashion|
|Data Team||Rob Parker, Senior Director, Data and Analytics||Build and maintain product data models and infrastructure to support data analysis||Create repeatable and reliable product data sets & models & related data pipelines/processes|
Note that due to the strategic importance of product data analysis and how early we are in the journey, the data team and product analysis team formed the R&D Fusion Team. The fusion team will take on some shared responsibilities in data analysis, data modeling and knowledge transfer/training for the foreseeable future, to progress our product data capabilities.
