#31 - Thoughtful Data and the Challenge of Scaling Qual Research
A rising demand for data and new technologies have both pushed qualitative research to new heights. But in the pursuit of speed and scale, have we lost some of what makes qual valuable? In this episode, we’re joined by Dr Matthew Farmer, Senior Research Associate at FlexMR, to discuss the challenges of scaling qual, and emerging thinking around thick data. Over the course of 10 minutes, we investigate the purpose of depth interviews, focus groups and other, traditionally small-scale methodologies. We look at what scale really means, and discuss the implications of expanding depth instead of volume. And finally, we examine how qual research can better adapt to the needs of decision-makers and become a strategic driving force. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) Featuring: Dr Matthew Farmer, Senior Research Associate @ FlexMR (LinkedIn) For more info on FlexMR, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#30 - How Insight is Informing the Future of Podcasts (with Tommy Walters of Acast)
As a burgeoning media channel, much of our understanding of podcast listeners relies simply on volumetric listening figures. But Acast is changing that dynamic. The company is building a robust library of insight into listeners, their preferences, habits and more. In this episode, we’re joined by Tommy Walters of Acast. Over 10 minutes, we explore what it takes to understand podcast audiences in detail, and put insights at the centre of collaborations with a variety of stakeholders – from advertisers to podcasters, listeners to media partners.

#29 - The Age of Customer Empowerment
Today’s customers are connected, influential as individuals and have access to a global stage upon which to act. In this world, the dynamic between brand and buyer provides great leverage to customers, but also great opportunity to insight teams. In this episode, we explore with Maria Twigge of FlexMR, why it is no longer enough to understand a market map as a theoretical concept or to listen to customers as input in decision making. We discuss how forward-thinking research teams are driving the conversation around customer-centric cultures and empowering people with new, better tools of engagement. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) Featuring: Maria Twigge, Research Director @ FlexMR (LinkedIn) For more info on FlexMR, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#28 - Developing Insight Frameworks That Work
Insight frameworks represent a formalised expression of the strategy, tactics and implementations of how research flows through a business. From the inputs, to the processes, systems and technologies that shape fieldwork, and eventually to the way in which outputs impact action – frameworks are a crucial tool for building a data-driven, customer-centric culture. In this episode, we investigate what is an insight framework is, why are they important and how can you start building one today. While there is no single answer to what the ideal framework should look like, over the course of ten minutes we identify best practices, common themes and stand-out examples. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#27 - Democratising Data and The Factors of Success
To democratise data is to provide access, control and input over the research process to the end-users of data. There’s a huge range of benefits that this can provide, from better communication to more streamlined project management. But to create a true culture of insight is challenging. In this episode, we discuss the steps to success. After an introduction to the reasons why a company might consider democratising research, we explore the steps researchers need to take in order to make it happen in a productive, positive way. From carefully defining project engagement processes to placing the right value on research expertise, and the importance of consistent communication – tune in to find out more. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#21 - Customer, User and Human Experience Research
In this episode of the MRX Lab from FlexMR, we look at the roles of customer, user and human experience research. What makes each of these domains different and where do they share similarities? We look back at the origins of UX and CX to investigate how they have evolved over time and what might be in store next. This episode also serves as a deep dive into the emerging field of human experience research. While still new, there are a number of definitions that agree on one thing. HX involves understanding and designing for human emotion – it seeks to answer questions about people, not interactions or things. But will this be enough to differentiate the practice in the crowded research dictionary? Only time will tell. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#14 - Thinking Outside Agile: The Case for Waterfall, Six Sigma & Lean Projects
In this episode of the MRX Lab podcast from FlexMR, we investigate three project management methodologies that are not agile. While agile research has quickly become part of the insights lexicon, there is much to be learnt from examining other techniques that have guided management principles over the past decades. Throughout the course of this episode, we dive into the manufacturing roots of waterfall, the extreme ends of agile that comprise lean ideals, and the statistically driven Six Sigma process – evaluating the merits and drawbacks of each in turn. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, the technology led research agency, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#12 – Ceteris Paribus (and Other Economic Principles for Insights)
In this episode of the MRX Lab podcast from FlexMR, we talk about the economic principles that are relevant to the insights industry. We start by defining the key differences between behavioural and more traditional economics, as well as exploring how the two fields have blurred lines of enquiry in the past. Over the second half of the episode, we dive into a number of key economic ideas and how they relate to the work researchers undertake – from marginality to calculating cost, understanding the trade-offs people make to how incentives change behaviours. Importantly, we draw conclusions about the value of both the rational and irrational consumer mind. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, the technology led research agency, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#11 – How the Slow Movement Challenges Agile Market Research
In this episode of the MRX Lab podcast from FlexMR, we talk about the slow movement; cultural revolution against the notion that faster is always better. We identify some of the key areas that the movement has influenced and ask whether there is a place for market research that is conducted at a deliberately slow pace. Over the course of this 10 minute episode, we examine how science, journalism, marketing and other practices have been affected before turning our sights on the popularity of agile practices in market research. We identify the tools, strategies and approaches that can be deployed to ensure that insight processes are conducted at the right speed. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, the technology led research agency, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#10 - The Effect of the Sacred and Profane on Consumer Behaviour
In this episode of the MRX Lab podcast from FlexMR, we look at the forces of sacred & profane consumption, and their effects on consumer behaviour. We ask what relevance these marketing and branding theories from the late 1900s have to modern researchers and examine the ways in which our investigation of behaviour can be shaped by such a lens. After defining the sacred and profane, we discuss the role of brand cathedrals, consumer rituals and other parallels that can be drawn from both the secularization of religion and the sacralization of the secular. But most importantly, we consider how to adapt research based on rituals and why understanding this context matters. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, the technology led research agency, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

We look at the societal changes taking place, shifting consumer attitudes, the effect on insights professionals and deep dive into conflicts with the practice of research sampling. Across the short episode, we consider how workforces are changing. Although freelancers in the insights industry have been relatively insulated to date – offering a highly skilled service in a complex environment – we cannot ignore the wider changes and what it means for the sector. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, the technology led research agency, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

In this episode of the MRX Lab podcast from FlexMR, we explore the relationship between insight professionals and software developers. In an era where researchers are 2.3x more likely to use an online survey than an offline alternative, it’s important to examine the skills, relationships and effects that development teams are having on the industry. And more important still is not just understanding the impact, but actively bringing both skill sets together in order to deliver better research software and better results for our clients. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, the technology led research agency, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook

#2 - The Joy Of Innovation And Importance Of Embracing Novelty
In this episode of the MRX Lab podcast from FlexMR, we explore the fun, messiness and novelty that should accompany innovation. Because, today, innovation is weighed down by management structures, pipelines and investment strategies – often reducing it to little more than a line item on a financial report. Stuff enough ideas in one end and new ways of working, products or services will emerge from the other. That’s the theory at least. But that strips out some of the most valuable, human elements; something that researchers are well positioned to fit back in. --- Presented by: Chris Martin, CMO @ FlexMR (CJ_24K) For more info on FlexMR, the technology led research agency, visit www.flexmr.net Or connect via LinkedIn / Twitter / Facebook
