Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, delegates should have an understanding of a number of effective solutions and success factors in creating real influence for market research/insight within the organisation by:

  • Increasing the actionability of the research you commission – how to know when you’ve got an insight; how to generate insight from research, how to refine, build on it and communicate it
  • Becoming more commercially astute – why demonstrating financial accountability is so important. How to think bigger picture. What’s so important about Return on Investment (ROI)? Key times to measure ROI. Practical exercises in how to measure the ROI of research and make it tangible
  • Improving relationship management with stakeholders and suppliers. Practical exercises to help you to understand your own work styles, to know how they come across to your colleagues and stakeholders and to help you to make small adjustments to improve the quality and productivity of your working relationships
  • Communicating effectively – improving your communications and making them more commercial. We will work with a tried and tested consultancy tool to provide concise and convincing recommendations
