Creating future insight experts isn’t just about data science or ‘big’ data. It’s about facilitating the right skills, creativity and persuasive storytelling in order to take analytics to the next level. Today's research professionals need to know more about analytics – and likewise it is crucial for analysts to increase their commercial insight.
