Letter to alpha corporation market research team

Letter to Alpha Corporation Market Research Team

Market Research executives face pressure to sustain and extend Research’s contribution to the company in an environment of constrained resources and rising business partner expectations. These forces have created widespread interest in mechanisms for comparing and assessing organization structure, budgeting and staffing, and vendor/agency involvement.This customized report analyzes Alpha Corporation’s responses to the Board’s survey for fiscal year 2008 and evaluates Alpha Corporation relative to peers by business model, industry, company revenue band, budget size, and staff levels, as well as the aggregate results for all participating members. The report is divided into three major sections: - Key Metrics, page 4 - Organizational Overview, page 9 - Detailed Benchmarks, page 16We welcome any thoughts or comments on this study and its findings. The Board is available to discuss any of the content or facilitate additional conversation on the study. With appreciation for your continued support,Market Research Executive BoardWashington, DC

Caveats

For metrics with statistically insignificant benchmarking data, results are depicted as N/A (Not Applicable). Any metrics not presenting Alpha Corporation’s results are due to missing response(s) to the corresponding question(s).

Resource and organizational benchmarks for the research function alpha corporation customized benchmarking report

Glossary of Terms

Business Intelligence/Competitive Intelligence Research: Tracking and reporting on internal business performance and/or competitors’ business performance.

Centralized (organizational structure): All market research staff is located together and there is one market research budget.

Contractors: Non-exempt (i.e., hourly workers) or representatives from a third-party company that have been contracted to perform a specific service.

Data Mining/Analysis: Using large databases to find previously unknown relationships between products and customers.

Decentralized (organizational structure): Market research staff is co-located at line partner locations and the market research budget is divided among the different locations.

Hybrid (organizational structure): A combination of centralized and decentralized organizational structures. For example, staff is located together but the budget is divided among locations or staff is co-located at line partner locations but the budget is centralized.

Internal Staff: Exempt employees (i.e., receive company benefits, etc.).

Omnibus Research: Surveys conducted regularly by a research agency, but which can be sponsored by a number of clients who do not share the same data but who buy access to a survey and questions to meet their individual needs.

Other (vendor): A non-preferred vendor that is used on a project-by-project basis with no special affinity given towards them. They are selected based on cost or other efficiencies.

Preferred (vendor): A reduced set of vendors that have been selected based on certain established criteria.

Primary Research: Conducting research to collect new data to solve a marketing information need.

Project: A discrete research engagement with a clear beginning and end and a well defined pre-determined objective.

Syndicated Research: Studies in which the sponsoring research company defines the audience to be surveyed and the interval between studies and the questions to be asked. Clients share the same results and costs through a subscription service.
