Title: The Power of Using Agile Research to Drive Innovation

Agile Research is a powerful and evolving strategy that leverages new techniques and technologies to make market knowledge more accessible, accurate and affordable. The true power is the ability to effectively adapt to what is happening around them — in a way that is innovative and consumer-focused.

Executive leaders of cutting-edge brands are challenging their marketing teams to leverage Agile techniques to become more innovative. One way insights and marketing teams can accomplish this is to run multi-wave projects using on-demand recruiting and webcams for live focus groups to quickly get feedback at multiple key milestones along the development process. This iterative approach builds upon knowledge from previous waves for optimized results. In addition, this Agile method establishes you as a strategic partner engaged with the client over the entire product development cycle — often illuminating additional research.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • Where Agile came from and why research teams need to learn more about this strategy.
  • How technology has automated the process.
  • Application examples for on-demand qualitative to reach its target audience faster and for less money that traditional methods.
