Art vs Science: The Business Difference
John Spacey, updated on December 20, 2015
In the context of business, an art is any activity that is based on human thought, abilities and skill. A science is any activity that is primarily driven by data.It is common for a single activity to be both an art and science. For example, a fashion designer may use their intuitive design sense but also may be interested in data about predicted fashion trends for an upcoming season. The choice between art and science also differs widely between organizations. Where some organizations have a culture of data-driven decision making, others primarily rely on the expertise and vision of their employees.
