Ask the Data before the Doctor

January 19, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 2:30 pm

Speaker: David James, CEO, J+D Forecasting

Convenor: Jayne Shufflebotham, IQVIA


As the great Sherlock Holmes once said – “It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data”, so this webinar will explore this principal in more depth.

There are questions market research can answer well, there are questions where market research is used for validation and there are questions where market research adds little or no value whatsoever. The skill is to knowing when each of the above applies!

This webinar will walk you through how secondary data should be used. It will equip you with the tools to select the right data sources and help you avoid some of the more common analytical pit falls.  The webinar content is aimed at anyone new to the industry (young researchers programme type people) or those new to secondary data.
