If we want Insight to transform our organisations' performance, then we first need to transform Insight. If the coronavirus lockdown has disrupted your normal research and analysis activity, could this be an opportunity to think about a strategic plan for your Insight team?

The coronavirus crisis may represent a moment of evolution for Insight teams, the time when we evolve from being data hunters to the farmers of Insight knowledge. There has never been a greater appetite for us to synthesise everything we know and build a joined-up view across many sources

Corporate Insight professionals are having to reassess the way they conduct market research and analysis. In times of turmoil we need to think creatively, but we also need to remember the key principles. So what are the key principles of running Insight investigations?

Does your Insight team make up the numbers? If it doesn't, it should! Here are 4 ways in which corporate Insight teams can use this skill to develop better perspective, enhance our agility, and give us greater confidence and credibility with decision-makers

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you work in an Insight team. So what are insights? Is it important to define them? Yes, the IMA believe it's critical if we want to make our insights make a difference in our organisations

If our organisations are to succeed, they need joined-up insights. The IMA's MADE in Insight model underpins the creation of a joined-up story about how consumers in our market become customers of our organisation and create value for it.

If we really want to create Insight-driven organisations, we first have to transform our Insight teams and the role they play. Watch our IMA video to learn more about what we do and why it is so important for Insight leaders.

There’s never been a more testing time to work in business, but in a year's time we may look back and realise that this period actually represented a hidden opportunity. If you’re an Insight specialist now working from home, how should you make the most of your time?

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.
