So much data but are we making better decisions?

During a discussion I had last week with a client, the question was raised -" Why are insights important and how should we think about them?"  In todays blog I will share with you my answer.

Success in idea generation is about finding new ways to connect with people who have the missing pieces.  Breakthrough ideas don’t come in a moment of inspiration but take time to evolve after spending much time in the background gestating.  Refined, over time, and improved by collisions with other ideas breakthroughs occur.
