When developing something new, or trying to make an already existing logic better, one needs all the analytics skill to critically think, consult with the developers and understand what he/she has developed. Post that comes the analytical reasoning, data analysis and discussions with team to see if the logic works correctly or not or are there any shortcomings with it that needs to be improved.
