"Business executives don't need to be fluent in data science, it is enough to be literate".
"Because the velocity of data is increasing and will always increase, the need for data literacy is increasing and will always increase. This does not mean that to be a successful executive you have to become a data scientist – quite the contrary. It means that in order to be a successful executive, you need to understand how data is turned into action, be familiar with the methods of data science and data-scientific research, and be able to think strategically about how to use data to create value for your business."...from a blog from Shelly Palmer titled, "Data Literacy Will Almost Make You Invincible"
