The Client-Side Insight Entrepreneur: Establishing an Insight Function

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 – 9:00am Pacific, 11:00am CST, 12:00pm EST



At a time when the latest business trends are focused around harnessing big data, analytics, data science and fact-based decision making, it is in stark contrast that there are still many organizations that operate without a defined Insight discipline.  But this continues to change as more and more companies are either starting or re-defining their departments, which will lead to more researchers finding themselves with an opportunity to establish their own Insight function.  Mara has had the opportunity to start two client-side Insight departments and will share some thoughts and considerations for taking on this task.

Please join us on Wednesday, Oct 4th, 2017 at 12:00pm EST.
