In this presentation we discuss the unique roles that statistics and statisticians can play in facilitating and leading innovation efforts. Data-based decision making, systems thinking, an independent perspective and the ability to influence others all work together to equip and position the statistician to lead growth project work to successful commercial success. Examples from real statistician-led projects will illustrate the role of statistics in making wise commercialization decisions. Finally, recommendations will be discussed on how the statistics field will need to broaden the skill base to prepare innovation leaders of the future.
