What is pilot studies? Surverys using a limited number of respondents and often employing less rigorous sampling techniques than are employed in large, quantitative studies.
What is experience surveys? Discussions with knowledgeable individuals, both inside and outside the organization, who may provide insights into the problem.
WHat is case analysis? Reviewing information from situations that are similar to the current one.
What is a marketing research problem? A statement specify ing the type of information needed by the decision maker to help solve the management decison problem and how that information can be obtained efficiently and effectively.
What is a marketing research objective? A goal statement, defining the specific information needed to solve the marketing research problem.
What is a management decision problem? A statement specifying the type of managerial action required to solve the problem.
What is a hypothesis? A conjectural statement about a relationship between two or more variables that can be tested with empirical data.
What is a research design? Th plan to be followed to answer the marketing research objectives.
What is descriptive studies? Research studies that answer the questions who, what, when, where, and how.
What is a variable? A symbol or concept that can assume any one of a set of values.
What is causal studies? Reseach studies that examine whether the value of one variable causes or determines the value of another variable.
