Insight Community


Welcome to the Insight Management Academy

Invest in Insight this Autumn and make Insight make a difference with the Insight Management Academy

The IMA is the best practice membership organisation which coined the phrase Insight Management, and has helped organisations to drive value from it for 15 years.

We develop and discuss best practice, help organisations to assess their Insight capability, and provide inspiration and guidance to any Insight team which wants to create more value with our benchmarking, training, consultancy and publications.

If you're an Insight leader in a client-side Insight function, your company can:

  • Register for the free Insight Community to benefit from our regular 5 Minute Insight emails with articles, book reviews, tips & tricks;
  • Participate in the IMA's  Insight Network for the chance to contribute to our research, receive copies of our new best practice reports, and get free advice;
  • Apply for membership of the IMA's Insight Forum, and join ebay, Asda, Nestle and Barclays for quarterly events in London, as well as benchmarking, training, and access to all previous research.

If you're not sure which corporate membership to choose, please contact us to discuss a free 100 day corporate membership trial.

The IMA can also provide standalone benchmarking, training, consultancy and publications to help you make Insight make a difference in your organisation.

Does the challenge of developing an effective strategy for Insight seem daunting? Might it be easier than we think? Developing a strategy can help us off the proverbial hamster wheel, and it can also be critical to motivating and inspiring our teams to deliver greater value.

It is often said that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and the same can be said for Insight teams. The latest IMA research reveals that larger Insight teams rank slightly higher for overall capability than smaller teams, but larger teams are not better at everything.
