‘Tis well and truly the season for digital transformation – Smarts is back and the December issue is now available online

For those of you who remember back to the heyday of Smarts, you may have been wondering what has become of the trusty old intelligent insights Intergen newsletter. And for those of you whose memories stretch back a way… you may even recall that once upon a time Smarts was once even a print specimen – lovingly produced, mailed and delivered to your desk on a quarterly basis in shiny (landscape, saddle-stapled, offset-printed, silver-accented) paper format. ... read full post
