Best Practices to Borrow/Steal from Startups (302699)*Neal Fultz, UCLA
Keywords: best practices, consulting, Joel Test
In the last year, the UCLA Statistical Consulting Group has made significant efforts to become more service-oriented. We have adapted the classic Joel Test for software companies to our team and improved our score from zero to six. Specifically, we will discuss our adoption of Version Control, Issue/Bug Tracking, Client Tracking and Automated Testing, what we learned from that process, and what our next steps are. We will also discuss how these best practices apply to non-consultants (analysts, data scientists and professional statisticians).
