BUAD 695 Project Consulting: Further Analysis

Research Tips

  • Ask yourself as many questions as possible to ensure you are thinking critically about the subject.
  • For target market research, consider not just the age, but the lifestyle, gender, household size, location, culture, and other factors that would influence that market's consumer tendencies.
  • Alternate your focus between the industry, company, and the consumer (who would buy X product? would person Y buy it? what prevents them from doing so? what could the company/product do to change this?).
