Greg Heist and Nick Wright will present IQ + EQ: Converging “Big Data” and Primary Research in the Era of Decision Intelligence, informing listeners that it’s rare to see an analytical model informing research or ad hoc research driving a predictive framework. Yet, as data becomes more varied and voluminous inside organizations, so does the pressure to leverage it; to drive business outcomes, and build organizational IQ. Likewise, approaches, that uncover why consumers behave as they do, continue to inform bottom-line strategies. Without this empathic knowledge, organizations fail to build their EQ.

» How organizations are championing a new paradigm
» Finding ways to link primary insights with “hard” data streams to inform smarter decision making
» More holistic “outside in” way of thinking represents the new norm in building reciprocal relationships between companies and consumers.

Knowing and acting on customer needs is perhaps the most important competitive advantage an organization can build.  And while most organizations claim to be customer-centric, few have the checks and balances in place to ensure customer centricity is operationalized as a strategy for growth.

Camille Nicita, Sarah Tarraf and Susan Scarlet will produce and deliver “Operationalizing Consumer-Centricity as a Strategy for Growth: A Workshop.”  Leveraging Gongos’ DICE Assessment Tool, executives at this forum will assess their organizations on 13 key statements related to the decision making on behalf of the customer, and how their growth strategies are grounded in customer attraction, retention and lifetime value.  For further information on the CMO Insight Summit and/or to attend, visit https://gdssummits.com/events/cmo/cmo-september-2017.
