I thought that is kind of things for skills for it. Anyway, Something data scientist should do... Using data benefit with business and organization. Using data to support business decision-making. So, some book is interesting. Data Science for Business What you need to know about data mining and data-analytic thinking By Foster Provost, Tom Fawcett. A book gives much more idea for readers to improve communication between business stakeholders and data scientists and how participate intelligently in your company’s data science project and  how to think data-analytically and etc.

• Business people who will be working with data scientists, managing data science–
oriented projects, or investing in data science ventures,
