Transforming Research From “What” to “Now What”
Research used to be about the what (data), then about the so what? (analysis). Today, we go to the now what? (strategy, action), and we find ourselves accountable for the business results of what we recommend. What are actionable steps should we take to translate for the organization the meaning of what we are learning about human beings and markets into lucid foresight that tells us where to play - and where to win.
