“When interpreting data and analytics, having a holistic understanding of why a piece of research is being conducted is essential in order to provide insightful observations and recommendations. I continually stress this message when training and mentoring others. Before even looking at data results, my first question is always: 'What are the background and objectives?' Not so much an insight, but a fun fact…of all the different market research solutions I have worked on, product testing is my favorite and I am motivated when I shop at my usual grocery store/supercenter and see many of the new and reformulated products we tested on the store shelves. My kids think it is pretty cool, too!”
