Developing a compelling point of view generally involves some type of research. Such research may be an industry survey that explores the prevalence of a particular business problem and the impact the problem is having on companies. It may be a series of qualitative interviews with business executives to understand how their organizations have solved a business problem and the benefits they’ve subsequently experienced. Or it may be a comprehensive literature search that uncovers critical data others have already generated on an issue that can support a particular point of view.
