Insight has become almost a cliché in contemporary marketing and research. There are many different definitions and, even worse, an assumption that the word will mean the same to one individual as it will to the next.

Instead, a simple model of thinking can be used to ensure that the outcome of a project or process has a powerful influence and is highly valued by the end users.
