2. Become a pro interrogator
Wherever you work, you should approach any brief that requests an analyst’s time with the critical eye of an agency. Perhaps even the attitude of a homicide detective.
The ability to reduce a brief to its core questions, deducing whether they are the right ones and whether they can be answered with the skills you have at your disposal are essential to avoid wasting time later on.
As we explain in the guide, with input from a number of specialists, ambiguity is absolutely not a starting point.
3. Go beyond your team wherever you can
Insights teams that work in silos are not successful insights teams.
Insights teams that can demonstrate their value to teams across the business are indispensable insights teams.
So, what better way to kick of 2019 than to approach a team with a business-critical problem and help them out? A quick win will kick start your year, and a success story with one team outside your own can help you build bridges with other teams across the organization.
Interrogation, collaboration, creativity, and delegation are key to the success of analysts in 2019.
