Analysing marketing data - and communicating your findings clearly - is vital to your career progression. According to Forrester’s report, Marketers Need To Acquire Adaptive Skill Sets, in the future the most valuable marketing professionals will be those who can not only manipulate data, but who are creative enough to pull interesting patterns and suggest unique solutions based on these findings.
