The book, which contains “how-to” information, sample RFPs, best practices, checklists, and more, is written for business professionals seeking to optimize their companies’ market research process, minimize the risk, and improve the actionability of end results. For those who have never hired market research agencies before, or who have, but perhaps with unsatisfactory results, this book provides practical, “how-to” advice.
