I am a data scientist, and I just moved from a consultancy company to a new company in a specific industry.
During interview I already told my now boss that my experience was mainly customer insights across multiple industries (i.e. nothing very specific or very deep, which is why I wanted to move to a more specific company)
My first month and I already got a new task to create a predictive modelling, and he expects me to give him a report "as soon as possible" (there is pressure from the CEO to finish this ASAP), but the thing is, this new model would need a pretty deep understanding of the industry.
How do I tell him that I would need time (a lot) just to study the industry first (trends, terms, KPIs, common strategies, etc.) since my seniors a coworkers are all busy themselves (some have even been disciplined/scolded for poor deliverables)? And any tips to learn fast or at least to communicate this or ask for help?
Thank you in advance
