The Art and Science of Interpreting Market Research Evidence offers a complete account of the way today's researchers interpret evidence and apply it to decision making. David Smith and Jonathan Fletcher show how to assess your current deciphering processes, and present an innovative framework integrating quantitative and qualitative approaches for analysing complex data-sets. With its holistic approach to interpretation and its 10-step process for making it work in practice, this book will equip you with a deep understanding of data analysis and ultimately improve your judgment to produce better business decisions.

"This is modern commercial research, where the mind of the researcher is finally acknowledged as admissible data. Prior knowledge, pragmatism, experience are all robust grist to the 'holistic' research mill. A must-read for anyone getting to grips with 21st century market research." Virginia Valentine, Semiotic Solutions

This book is supported by a ten-module training course consisting of a series of PowerPoint presentation charts.

"This is modern commercial research, where the mind of the researcher is finally acknowledged as admissible data. Prior knowledge, pragmatism, experience are all robust grist to the 'holistic' research mill. A must-read textbook for anyone getting to grips with 21st century market research."
—Virginia Valentine, Semiotic Solutions

"This book enables both the research client and practitioner to think more clearly about how different strands of ‘research’ can work together through a unifying analytical approach. Although designed as a teaching and development resource, the underlying thinking makes refreshing reading for all those supplying or using market research."
—Leslie Sopp, Head of Research, Institute of Chartered Accountants, Chairman, Association of Users of Research Agencies

"This book is aimed at newcomers to market research; however, Smith and Fletcher's approach to their subject can teach us all some new lessons. I was particularly impressed by the weight of theoretical and practical evidence they assemble to underpin their arguments at every turn and, as two of the most respected researchers in the industry, see it as their responsibility to share that knowledge with others in as highly accessible a form as possible."
—Nigel Culkin FMRS, Associate, Dean (Business Partnerships, University of Hertfordshire)

From the Inside Flap:

Newcomers to market research should welcome this book. It provides an easy to follow account of the way today’s market researchers – working in an holistic way across both qualitative and quantitative evidence - now interpret and apply evidence to the decision-making process. The book will be particularly helpful to those responsible for training agency and client staff in ‘new’ market research, and for lecturers keen to include practical accounts of how the industry is now operating.
