[Webinar Recording] Democratizing Insights: Increasing the Influence of Capital One’s Insights Team

View the recording to learn how Capital One's insights team impacts their organization's strategy.


According to BCG, forward-thinking companies are turning customer insight into a source of a competitive advantage. However, only 20 percent of insights teams are considered a strategic business partner or a source of competitive advantage.

Capital One’s insights teams identified the potential impact of maturing their function to become a source of competitive advantage for their organization and developed a plan to achieve their goals.

Join Philip Rhodes, Capital One’s Director of Design Research, on November 1st as he discusses how Capital One is approaching their transformation, starting with a complete overhaul of their tools and technology to manage, share, and democratize their research and insights. Mark Hammer, COO of Bloomfire, will join Philip to discuss how developing a knowledge sharing strategy can help insights teams distribute their new research more effectively, find existing research to influence new projects, and show key decision-makers how consumer insights and market research impact the entire organization.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • How to create a path towards becoming a more strategic business partner
  • How cutting-edge technology can help democratize insights
  • Key learnings from Capital One’s journey and how they are making insights more strategic
