Think Outside the Box: Creative Ideas for Better Qualitative Research

Focus groups and other qualitative research techniques are often used to generate ideas for new product development. In spite of this frequent application, it is notoriously difficult to bring eight, ten or even twelve strangers together for a discussion.

Qualitative analysis: where do the humans bring value?

Robots replacing humans is a fear that has been increasingly dominant in the media in recent years.

Not only this, but the context and motivations of the individuals need to be considered in addition to their responses and behaviors. But the effort is worth it; you can work to really understand consumer behavior and get to the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’.
