Comparing apples and oranges: Is a global segmentation transferable?

Comparing apples and oranges: Is a global segmentation transferable?

When our clients are considering primary market research in emerging markets they typically face two challenges - a lack of good local data and budget.

The absence of reliable and up-to-date information in emerging markets should mean that a greater budget is allocated to primary market research. However, in reality the opposite is true. Consequently, our clients want to know if they can tailor global studies to reflect the nuances of different emerging markets.

Punching above your weight: Combining behavioural and attitudinal data to strengthen segmentations

In this paper we examine the differences between behavioural and attitudinal approaches to segmentation and outline how integration of the two can best be achieved to strengthen segmentation solutions

Segmentation solutions in healthcare are experiencing a welcome comeback. But there appear to be two camps emerging - one camp are proponents of the 'behavioural' segmentation based on secondary sales, script or similar data; the other believe that 'attitudinal' segmentations must be based on primary market research to accurately delineate segment membership, definition and the "whys" that underpin the findings. It's time to take off the gloves and look at the argument from both sides.

How statistical analysis revealed the most effective segmentation solution for an established product in multiple indications

How statistical analysis revealed the most effective segmentation solution for an established product in multiple indications

Our client has an established product for multiple indications. They wanted to create a HCP segmentation typing tool which could be implemented in-field to help classify physicians across two different therapeutic areas. There was rationale to suggest that because the two therapeutic areas are pathologically different, then two separate typing tools would be required. However, it was also argued that a one segment solution would be most suitable as physicians fundamentally have the same attitudes, irrespective of the disease they are treating. Additionally, our client would be able to implement a single segmentation tool into its core business much more efficiently than two separate tools. The challenge was to therefore decide whether a one tool or two tool solution would be most suitable.
