Top Skill For People In Insight

Samuel Carter wrote a post on LinkedIn stating that the top skill for an insight specialist is not statistics but a strong ability to communicate. Poor communication is a far more common reason why research fails to turn into insight, than poor statistical underpinning.

  • Storytelling
  • Informal speech
  • Formal speech
  • Long form writing
  • Short form writing
