Mike Serpetti, Data Scientist, Marketing Sciences presents “The Researcher’s Paradox: A Further Look on the Impact of Large Scale Choice Exercises” with Megan Peitz, Sawtooth Software at the 19th Annual Sawtooth Software Conference.

pp_Mike_Serpetti

MaxDiff is ideal for determining preference order, yet becomes problematic for large item-sets.  Design techniques including Sparse and Express address these issues, but not enough large item-set research exists.  This research explores and validates both methods with real respondents on a set of 100 items to determine which is better.

Sawtooth Software conferences are renowned for their practical, practitioner-oriented focus and depth in the fields of choice/conjoint analysis, segmentation, and data collection/analysis. It is a forum to exchange ideas, network, and learn about quantitative methods in marketing research.

Director, Analytics Sarah Tarraf and Data Analyst Claire Gilbert present “Unraveling Path to Purchase: Untangling the Consumer Journey & Piecing it Back Together” at AMA’s 2016 Advanced Research Techniques (ART) Forum.

pp_sarah_tarrafpp_claire_gilbertAs market researchers, we talk a lot about path to purchase. However, as analysts, we struggle to identify an effective analytic approach to uncover a consumer’s path and make this information actionable to end users. This presentation will provide an overview of a questioning framework and analytic technique used to effectively capture consumer-reported engagement with marketing touchpoints and path to purchase – allowing us to move beyond strictly analytically derived models and integrate the consumer back into consumer path to purchase.

The annual ART Forum explores the latest developments in marketing analytics and develops a network of colleagues who are serious about solving problems and advancing the field of marketing.
