As Rustin Cohle said in True Detective, “Time is a flat circle,” so welcome back to the beginning of our Analytics Journey! Previously, we cycled through the CRISP-DM process from beginning to end, explaining the stages as well as the way we approach our Data Science life cycle at Ruths.ai. We have strived to demonstrate the importance of melding the human element with quantitative rigor. Now, we will re-iterate through the steps as all good analytics processes will do, looking for ways to strengthen our model. This time through, we will move from the theoretical to practical with an eye towards enacting the stages in the real world.
