So why would a business fail to engage in market research before setting out on a particular strategy, product launch, or important decision?
Pilots today face an increasingly complex array of factors they need to take into account — increased air traffic movements, gridlocked airports, more extreme weather events, and new technologies, which are supposed to make their lives easier and less stressful.
