I used to be a DBA. I'm now a data engineer. Having worked with data scientist I think they need to be pairing up with a role similar to mine and both roles need to be talking to each other.
I've worked in positions where one member of the team was a prototyper and 2 of us worked at refactoring and getting it ready for production. We didn't wait for prototyping to finish because we needed to understand each other and a "chuck it over the wall" approach wouldn't work. A lot of what we did became genetically useful and was reused by the prototyper. That meant we got to the point where the actual innovation could be productionised much quicker. The process relied on building a close team and refining ways of working.
