Study Snapshot

Market research leaders from 14 global pharmaceutical and medical device organizations participated in this  benchmark field study and survey analysis. 

Key Findings

Setting The Best Research Agenda & Mix: The allocation of most organization’s market research activities is far out of line when comparing to customer expectations and needs. Many companies are heavily skewed toward tracking projects that are not as impactful for customers as are Insight Projects. Rebalancing the mix can allow market research groups to go deeper and respond to market changes.
