Insights

 

Welcome to the Insight Management Academy

The IMA is the world's leading authority on transforming corporate Insight teams. We provide our members with inspiration, guidance and support through:

Insight forums: meeting since 2005, these provide thought-leadership and debate for Insight leaders from organisations like Nestle, McDonalds, eBay and John Lewis

Regular advice: for any Insight leader, whether you are new to your role or an experienced director wanting to transform a well-established Insight team

Capability benchmarking: starting with a free survey to help you understand how your Insight team compares to 300 others on 42 key aspects of Insight management

Online learning & publishing: free 5 Minute Insight emails to challenge your thinking, and an online library of 10-page Insight leader guides to help our members

Training and team support: a comprehensive programme of online workshops plus bespoke coaching, mentoring and Insight transformation consultancy

 

We offer a range of membership options to suit different organisations, and we are always happy to talk to any Insight professional who has the ambition to transform their Insight team. If you would like us to contact you, please click here.

What’s new from the IMA?

Where does your Insight team record its findings? Do you have a sophisticated knowledge management system? Or an intranet portal? A shared drive? Or an old file on the floor beneath your desk? Last week the Insight forum discussed knowledge systems, and the ways we can get the best from them

The next online Insight forum will take place on Wednesday 26th May from 10am - 12pm and the main topic of discussion will be Reassessing the position of Insight: how have the last 12m affected our organisations' expectations of Insight, and how have our Insight leaders responded?

Together again in London and Manchester! For the first time in over a year the IMA's Insight forum will return to London and Manchester this June, allowing senior corporate Insight leaders to meet and share ideas in person. Please let us know if you would like to join us!

To drive change we need to devote as much time and effort to influencing decision-makers as we do to generating new insights. If we don't, it's like joining a Zoom or Teams call and getting frustrated when nobody listens to us. And then realising that we're on mute

This year we are launching a new challenge called the Value of Insight and inviting members to select an Insight manager who can represent their organisation. The representatives will form a cross-sector group and work together as a project team to caculate an Insight ROI

The first Insight forum of 2021 and, despite the adverse conditions, many of our most progressive Insight teams are planting the seeds of customer knowledge now so that they can provide agile advice throughout the seasons

We didn't choose the circumstances in which we had to do our work last year, and we won't be able to control events this year either. But we can all make a decision about how we will use the time that we are given

Join us at the Insight forums to share challenges and ideas with some of the best Insight teams in the world
