On this episode of The Innovation Engine, we discuss how to become an insights-driven business and how what we at 3Pillar call the Product Mindset can set you on the path to becoming one. Among the topics we discuss are what it means to be insights-driven, the advantages that are inherent in focusing your efforts on driving business outcomes, and the (possibly surprisingly) role that is becoming the driving force behind this shift within many organizations.
Joining us to talk about those topics and more is Tyler McDaniel, Vice President of Buyer Experience Analytics at Forrester. Tyler manages a team of product managers and analytics insights professionals who help Forrester clients understand technology adoption trends, buyer behavior, and customer journey information for purchases of products and services.

Tyler outlines the five competencies that Forrester’s research has found insights-driven businesses excel at:
Another important aspect of insight-driven organizations is creating a closed-loop system built on top of these core competencies:
“It’s making sure you have a feedback loop that goes all the way back to the beginning; a closed loop cycle. It’s not enough to just collect insights,” Tyler says. “We have to learn, we have to digest, and then we have to act – then we have to go back to the beginning and start over. As your team gets used to this, insights will start actually fueling your iteration and allowing your organization to go faster, and faster, and faster.”
