"Working with non-marketing experienced professionals meant we applied more time normalising the data and analysing the project from a data perspective. Marketing without analysis/statistics or vice-versa only shows half a picture. However, removing any preconceived bias based on previous experience helps us open up to new thoughts/ideas. The normalised dataset mentioned above has been beneficial to other internal projects so the time invested has been more than repaid."
