Insight Community

 

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 and guidance through:

Insight Forum: which has met in London every quarter since 2005. The next meeting will be Wednesday 27th November when we will discuss ways to improve the positioning of Insight - in the hearts, minds and processes of our organisations. 

Insight publications: we published our 25th Insight leader guide last week, a 10-page introduction to Insight communication. 

Insight training: we provide a range of full-day workshops, now including Storytelling for Insight teams and Visual communication for Insight teams. 

Insight benchmarking: which includes a free survey for all Insight leaders who would like to compare their company's Insight capability with other organisations.

Please click here to see our membership options, including our free membership trials.

Additionally all client-side Insight professionals can register for our free Insight community and receive regular 5 Minute Insight emails.

Please note that over the next few days there will be some development work taking place on our website. If members experience problems trying to access content, or non-members would like to contact us, please email info@insight-management.org

What’s new from the IMA?

The most effective Insight teams succeed in identifying and occupying an optimal position in the hearts, minds and processes of the wider company. Is your Insight team in any position to guide its organisation? This is the topic for the next Insight Forum meeting in London on 27th November

As Insight leaders we all know that there is no point doing any analysis or market research unless our insights drive change in our organisations. But we are not communication professionals, so how can we think more creatively to get our messages across?

Most Insight projects go wrong before they have ever started because our analysts and researchers do not nail the underlying business issue. The IMA has a 3-step RED process to help.

A quick update on recent IMA research, publications, training and events, including our recent focus on Insight communication, storytelling and visualisation. For more information please email info@insight-management.org

The ESOMAR Congress in Edinburgh and the Insight Forum in London provided a rare opportunity to a review the shape and health of our Insight profession. Companies now spend $80bn a year on Insight, and the future is bright, but only if we focus on the right things.

One of our favourite books this summer was Richard Shotton's The Choice Factory. Richard's focus is on understanding the biases which influence consumer choices, but the IMA is just as interested in the biases which affect internal decision-makers' choices.

Many of the working practices that have developed in our offices implicitly favour extroverts over introverts, which can be a problem for Insight teams as many of our analysts and researchers are likely to be introverts. How can we Insight leaders help our introverts to thrive?

Just like a company needs to understand its customers if it’s going to influence their behaviour, so our Insight teams need to understand our internal customers if we’re going to influence their decisions.
