Sample text

The 1993 research of Moorman et al. identified key influences relating to market research generally which are fully applicable to qualitative research in particular. 1 for easy digestion. Elements relating to the individual (in italic) are generally agreed to be more important than organisational influences and, arguably, this is even more the case for qualitative market research, where there is less solid ‘data’ to rely on (or directly access) than it is for quantitative with its (apparent) scientific certainty.

In a briefing meeting representing multi-departmental interests, for instance, the ability to see the issues from several viewpoints (second position) and then satisfactorily resolve any apparent conflicts within the research approach (third position) is invaluable.

So why does it happen? Largely this sort of approach is adopted because of constraints of time, and because of the need (or the perceived need) to make on the spot decisions. There may be instances when such immediacy is appropriate – but it is likely that these are less frequent than the practice would suggest. Such sessions are, of course, different from ‘workshop’ sessions where the immediate post-group discussion by clients and researchers is integral to the research process. Another ‘probably’ cue is given by the fact that some qualitative market research operates at a very basic level and does not move beyond the reporting role.
