Walking down the street, I make a number of observations about the world around me: I notice how many women seem to have a bob-style haircut or the dominance of white cars on the road. Everyday each of us is bombarded with a wealth of information, constantly taking in the world around us.

The ability to transform a wealth of complex data into insights and ultimately turn those powerful insights into strategy is increasingly separating the winners from the losers.
