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?

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

As part of our ongoing partnerships with major conference providers, IMA client-side members can claim a free ticket to two major events this term, the 2021 Quirk's Event Virtual - Global, and Qual360

The next online Insight forum will take place on Wednesday 10th March from 10am - 12pm. The main topic of discussion will be how successful Insight teams manage to influence decision-makers whilst working from home
