  6. 6. 6 Thursday 2 December - 09:15 Ian Ralph Divisional Director, Business & Technology GfK NOP, UK Steve August Chief Executive Officer Revelation, USA Life through the small screen: mobilising online qualitative research via smart phones • Giving an honest appraisal of current smart phone capabilities and limitations for qualitative research • Comparing the relative strengths and weaknesses of PC versus smart phone interactions • Exploring best practices in creating mobile research activities that simultaneously engage and deliver deep insights Presentation abstract: We are currently witnessing rapid growth of the smart phone market, accounting for approximately 1-in-4 mobile phones shipped in 2009 across North America and Western Europe and half the phones shipped in Japan over the same period. When combined with the growing penetration of high- speed data connections via mobile devices (with global 3g penetration reaching 15% in 2009 and forecasted to triple over the next 3 years), it is clear that the mobile phone has the potential to become as vital a conduit for market research as the PC is now. While there is a great deal of excitement regarding smart phones and qualitative research, there has been very little research conducted to fully understand the best practice and methods of this new research medium. This presentation will draw on research conducted in parallel on both PCs and smart phones to explore the nature of mobile interactions for qualitative research. It will explore the comparative strengths and weaknesses of smart phones and their applications for qualitative research, relative strengths and weaknesses of PC vs. Smart Phone based research, and how qualitative practice and methods can be evolved to take best advantage of smart phone based research. About Ian & Steve… Ian Ralph is a Divisional Director at GfK Business & technology, part of GfK NOP.

  7. 7. 7 Thursday 2 December - 10:00 Paul Roberts Managing Director, Customer and Employee Experience BrainJuicer, UK Using mobile phones to determine what really drives customer satisfaction and behaviour: emotion! • Discussing new neuro-scientific findings demonstrating that ‘happiness’ is the primary driver of customer satisfaction • Providing evidence that emotion-based feedback delivers stronger, revealing and actionable insights • Discussing a revolutionary customer satisfaction platform that pushes the boundaries of mobile measurement Presentation abstract: Excellent customer service is critical to a thriving business. New findings prove that emotions drive customer satisfaction; customers are most satisfied when they feel happy after a transaction, and vice versa. The goal in managing retail or service-oriented business, then, should be simple: make customers happy. And essential to understanding how best to please customers is measuring how they feel. Our company wanted to help organisations find out what really makes people tick (for better or for worse!) using the mobile platform in a fun and engaging manner, so we developed an emotion-based real-time approach to measuring customer satisfaction. This new approach, SatisTraction™, is a multi-platform methodology that uses our multi-dimensional emotional measure, FaceTrace®. SatisTraction proves to be an exciting and effective tool for mobile research, giving companies feedback on how to make customers happy. Its real-time emotional measurement can be aligned to all points of interaction; in call centres, online interception, and retail environments - all without sacrificing rich verbatims and the measure of emotion that most SMS measures do without. About Paul… As BrainJuicer’s Managing Director of Customer and Employee Experience, Paul led the launch of SatisTraction™, BrainJuicer's revolutionary approach to measuring customer satisfaction. Paul brings nearly 30 years of experience in technology, operations, and sales, and most recently worked in business development, management, and consulting at various start-ups and mid-sized companies. Paul is passionate about truly understanding how customers feel in order to drive growth, give customers what they want, and build better companies.
  8. 8. 8 Thursday 2 December - 11:15 Siamack Salari Founder & Partner EverydayLives International, UK Keynote Presentation: How the idea of creating a mobile application for our ethnographers was hijacked by the very clients we wanted to use it with • Developing a mobile tool to capture events in the field and share with client ‘followers’ • Turning mobile application into an internal business tool for employees to capture and share insights • Discussing critical issues on security, legal, and data aspects of the mobile application • Outlining learnings, mistakes and risks to proof test ideas and ensure wide adoption Presentation abstract: How creating an app for us turned it into an app for them is perhaps, a familiar story. You invent something for a particular application and suddenly find that people are using it for something completely different. It was Twitter.com which inspired me to use a smart device to capture events in the field and share them with client 'followers'. We ran a live test in the field which kind of worked - but not completely. Twitter was not set up to be used by ethnographic field researchers, which is why we decided to create our own ethnographic research application. Our application was created for our field ethnographers to collaborate with analysts back in the office. Yet out of nowhere, we had the world's largest brand wanting it for their own staff to capture and share insights within their business. Some of the new issues we had to grapple with included: Security - here was an organisation that was second only to the Pentagon for attracting hackers. Legal - here was an organisation which had extremely deep pockets attracting many legal challenges. Adoption - our tool was to be used by 9000 employees. How do we get them to use it? Data - expected outputs per year of 50,000 events/insights. How do we even begin to sort through such content? My talk will outline our learnings, our mistakes and calculated risks we took to proof test of our ideas and ensure wide adoption and use within our client's organisation. About Siamack… Siamack is a pioneering video ethnographer first applying his techniques in J Walter Thomson's planning department during mid 1990's. In 2000 he established EverydayLives in London and, with team, has worked for FT 500 companies in over 23 countries. Siamack is also a visiting lecturer at both London Business School and Oxford University SAID business school.
  9. 9. 9 Thursday 2 December - 12:00 Dianne Gardiner Managing Director Latitude Insights, Australia A smart opportunity or not? Using smartphones in online research communities • Discussing the use of smartphones in the context of an online research community • Evaluating similarities and differences in user feedback between responses given via computers versus smartphones • Evaluating how the different types of notification also impacts user response Presentation abstract: Latitude Insights conducted an online research community amongst iPhone users to understand consumer behaviour in response to mobile technology. While the insights were predominantly generated from online conversations, the mere presence of over 100 smartphones users provided the opportunity to also explore how smart phones could be used to engage participants. Renieke Reitsma from Forrester recently wrote “Market researchers need to think out of the box and come up with innovative ways to conduct research through mobile phones”. The driving need to this call for action is engaging people (not respondents) in information exchange when and where it matters to them. By respecting their needs, we manage to stay more relevant as an industry, as well as getting closer to them in day to day life. Our study gives some insight into how best to use the mobile opportunity. During our project, community members had the choice of participating in the discussions via computer or using their smartphones. Our presentation will compare the similarities and differences in the use of computers and mobile phones in soliciting user feedback in terms of timing, number and detail of response. We also evaluate the impact on user responses using different types of notifications. About Dianne… With over 15 years of experience as a supplier of market research, Dianne formed Latitude Insights in late 2007. Prior to this, she worked with Blue Moon Research, Open Mind, Omnicom Research, and Frank Small and Associates, With extensive experience in both qualitative and quantitative research, Dianne’s passion for research is in understanding why. Dianne has an in-depth knowledge of the FMCG, retail, banking and finance industries, together with substantial experience in social marketing. Today Dianne spends much of her time engaging in true two-way dialogue within Latitude’s online research communities. She has previously presented at conferences in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
  10. 10. 10 Thursday 2 December - 14:00 Dörte Töllner Managing Director Point-Blank International, Germany Brainstorming workshop: Understanding consumers’ acceptance and incentives for participating in mobile market research In this brainstorming workshop, delegates will discuss their thoughts on the consumers’ acceptance and incentives to encourage consumers to participate in mobile market research. Delegates, divided into teams will brainstorm strategies on how to encourage consumer participation in mobile research. At the end of the workshop, team leaders will have the opportunity to present their results to the audience.

  11. 11. 11 Thursday 2 December - 16:00 Julie Byskov Gade Founder & Managing Director StoryField, Denmark Concepting school food through mobile research: a case study for the municipality of Copenhagen • The motivations behind this mobile study: which dynamics influence children’s’ choice of food during school time? • Discussing the difficulties of interviewing school children through traditional methods • Utilising mobile methods for documenting their behaviour through images, video and text • Evaluating the success of this mobile research: what have we learned? Presentation abstract: This case study is about a mobile study with children done for the Municipality of Copenhagen. The Municipality wanted to reform the food in public primary schools of Copenhagen. In the pre-studies they wanted to gain knowledge on how the school children experienced three different test concepts for school food. However, due to the difficulty interviewing young school children, a mobile research method was used instead. Children who participated in the study used their mobile phones to document their behaviours and thoughts with images, video and text. They shared their documentation through an online space for collecting mobile research (Piipl.net). They also commented on each others photos and videos online, thus creating online conversations around food and breaks in school. At the end of the study, selected children participated in a group discussion and created short films about their experiences, based on the mobile documentation. The study gave the Copenhagen Municipality a deep insight into how the children experienced the food concepts. The insights were communicated through rich visual and narrative material. About Julie… Julie is the Founder and Managing Director of StoryField. She has a Master degree from the IT University of Copenhagen where she wrote her Master thesis on qualitative mobile user research. She has previously worked for three years as a User Experience Consultant for LBi Copenhagen, working mostly with user experience and experience architecture for international clients such as IKEA, Phillip Morris and Etihad Airways.
  12. 12. 12 Thursday 2 December - 16:45 Susanne Friese Lecturer & Consultant Leibniz University of Hanover, Germany Sponsored track: Analysing mobile market research data with ATLAS.ti • How to analyse qualitative data from online surveys successfully? • Analysing mobile research data collected from iphone’s App EthOS • Discussing quick and easy ways of presenting research findings to clients Presentation abstract: The aim of the presentation is to show how ATLAS.ti can be used to analyse mobile market research data. I have selected two examples to present to you: the analysis of online survey data and data collected via the mobile device EthOS. I will show you how data can be integrated into software for analysis, how data can be analysed efficiently and how the analysis process and results can be shared easily with team colleagues and clients. About Susanne… By way of a brief history, I started working with computer software for qualitative data analysis in 1992. My initial contact with CAQDAS tools was from 1992 to 1994, as I was employed at QualisResearch in the USA. In following years, I worked with the CAQDAS Project in England (1994 - 1996), where I taught classes on The Ethnograph and Nud*ist. Two additional software programs, MAXQDA and ATLAS.ti, followed shortly thereafter. During my dissertation and in my subsequent position as an Assistant Professor at the Copenhagen Business School in Denmark, I carried out a variety of research projects using both qualitative and quantitative methods. In that context, SPSS computer software was used to analyse quantitative data; ATLAS.ti supported our work with qualitative material. Today, I mainly give courses in ATLAS.ti, and occasionally MAXQDA. I am also a member of Merlien Institute’s European Advisory Board. In addition, I have accompanied numerous projects around the world in a consulting capacity (QuaRC), authored didactic materials and one of the principal contributors to the ATLAS.ti User’s Manual. I teach qualitative and quantitative research methods in the Sociology Department at Leibniz Universität Hannover as part of the Bachelor and Master’s degree program in Social Sciences, and also offer interview training.

  14. 14. 14 Friday 3 December - 08:45 Mark Michelson Qualitative Research Consultant Michelson & Associates & TruQual, USA There’s an app for that! A review of smartphone apps for marketing research • Reviewing which apps are best for what purposes: what are the pros and cons, and costs and benefits • Discussing the linkages between mobile insights and actionable, meaningful business propositions • Outlining a comprehensive taxonomy of the latest smartphone apps and their uses for marketing researchers Presentation abstract: There are literally thousands of new smart phone apps that aid in marketing research - but which ones are best for specific kinds of research? Join Mark Michelson in an in-depth review of the latest smart phone apps and near field mobile technologies. Mark will provide a comprehensive taxonomy of which smartphone apps are best for online surveys, ethnographic journaling, online qualitative research, mystery shopping and crowd-sourcing.

  15. 15. 15 Friday 3 December - 09:30 Bernhard Witt Chief Executive Officer 2x4 Market Research Consulting, Germany Boomerangers, teens & app-enthusiasts: best practices for deploying mobile app-based research across varied consumer segments • Designing the research approach: “Pull” versus “Push” research techniques • Knowing how and when to solicit, engage and maintain respondent participation • How to analyse unstructured data (e.g. pictures, videos and GPS coordinates) efficiently? • Discussing results and learnings of mobile research done for large FMCG companies Presentation abstract: Mobile research expands the ability of researchers to track choices, thoughts, movements and behaviours in real-time. Accessing and engaging people with mobile devices at the point of experience allows for a collection of deep insights that cannot be captured with any other research approach. Researchers are starting to shift from chopping up massive amounts of aggregate data to now thinking about looking at consumers over time to gauge their experiences with a product or service. While the stock of mobile research has recently risen and though researchers and marketers are recognizing mobile phones as the most personal and intimate conduit for data collection, there has been limited consideration of what sets this mobile approach apart from more traditional research methodologies. This presentation will present client case studies, discuss best practices associated with mobile research design, soliciting and maintaining participation, and dealing with unstructured data such as pictures, videos and GPS coordinates, and draw out the lessons learned from navigating unchartered territory utilizing a new mobile research approach. About Bernhard… Bernhard is the Chief Executive Officer of 2x4 Market Research Consulting AG in Germany. He has over fifteen years of experience in market research and data analysis. After having worked for SPSS in various positions, he founded 2x4 in 2005.
  16. 16. 16 Friday 3 December - 10:45 Malte Friedrich-Freksa Head of Market Research YOC AG, Germany Evaluating two different mobile research designs: ad-hoc mobile portal research and personal application mobile research • Discussing the two mobile research modes in line with two case studies • Evaluating two different digital marketing campaigns based on these empirical data • Considering critical factors for participation and response rates on mobile research: design, costs for mobile surfing and length of questionnaire Presentation abstract: In order to evaluate mobile marketing campaigns in a comprehensive perspective, mobile researchers have to enhance their operational area. Two case studies examine the significance of different mobile research modes: 1. Ad-hoc mobile portal research: A mobile internet survey was implemented in a mobile internet portal to measure a) characteristics of the reached campaign target group and b) evaluate the campaign. 13% of portal visitors clicked the survey ad and 70% of them completed the questionnaire (n=2,053). The results indicate excellent campaign evaluation. The target group proved to be mainly male, younger and well-educated. 2. Personal application mobile research: In evaluating an integrated digital marketing campaign of a well-known brand, an exposed control group research design was set up. 5% of all campaign participants clicked the survey ad and 30% of them completed the questionnaire (n=429). Results from the study indicate: (a) campaign participants experience the brand much more positively, (b) campaign participants with higher involvement show increasing brand pattern and (c) increasing campaign evaluation. Further mobile research should integrate application within the data collection process. Differences in mobile research designs may also affect response rates and the costs for mobile surfing. The length of questionnaires is still a critical factor for participation. About Malte… After graduating in 2000, Malte participated in establishing a market research unit for youwant.com, an internet start-up company. After that, he worked as a market researcher for Lycos-Europe.com. In 2003 he founded his own company Idalab, specialised in digital market research and modern data analysis. Since 2003 he is a consultant for YOC, one of Europe’s leading mobile marketing and mobile advertising companies. Malte is specialised in online and mobile reseach with an emphasis on modern data analysis.
  17. 17. 17 Friday 3 December - 11:30 Scott Dodgson Director - Research, Insight, Consulting SKOPOS, UK The future is in their hands: Exploring the application of qualitative & quantitative insight illumination methods across the mobile platform • Highlighting how the mobile channel is currently being utilised to identify and illuminate market insights in both a B2C and B2B context • Identifying when a mobile approach works well, and when it struggles • Exploring the future of mobile research over the next five years, and how this is likely to translate into innovative approaches Presentation abstract: Scott will provide a snapshot of mobile research in 2010, outlining its current applications (along with the associated advantages and limitations of the platform) across qualitative and quantitative disciplines, and examine its future potential. He firmly believes that the mobile phone is becoming the most powerful, flexible, and essential device consumers own - effectively a handheld mini-computer - which will ultimately revolutionise the way researchers interact with the platform, and, by extension, respondents. Scott will present the catalysts that drive this quiet revolution, explore the interlinkages with mobile research as well as discuss opportunities that are opening up for researchers. Such advances include the ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ technological innovations driven by the introduction of smart phones (and shortly super phones), as well as increased consumer interaction with social media networks, blogging and news websites - influencing consumer behaviour in accessing the mobile internet. Mobile is now widely regarded as the 5th research methodology, and will ultimately extend, enhance and replace existing elements of the researcher’s toolkit. Embracing new, innovative, approaches and technologies such as mobile - is fundamental to furthering our knowledge and the relevancy of market research in 2010 and beyond (across qualitative and quantitative disciplines). If we do not, we lose relevance and credibility - if we don’t adapt, we die.

  19. 19. 19 Friday 3 December - 15:30 Betsy Leichliter Qualitative Research Advisor Leichliter Associates, USA Shamsu Bhaidani Chief Executive Officer FocusForums, Canada Fly on the wall or in their face? Using unobtrusive and high-engagement approaches to sustaining natural flows of mobile qualitative information • Demonstrating how mobile qualitative research can enable participants to share in-the-moment thoughts • Discussing how varied approaches to mobile qualitative research can enhance client engagement • Identifying opportunities for further optimisation Presentation abstract: This presentation is inspired by the challenge to "Develop a natural way to convey information about specific situations using mobile research." This challenge is based on the hypothesis that mobile qualitative methods that feel "natural" are more likely to engage participation, encourage more genuine sharing of in-the-moment experiences and emotions, and contribute to more credible or inspiring insights. We will discuss key learning from new research- on-research that explores a variety of mobile qualitative methods using online platforms for participant information-sharing via phones (iPhone, Blackberry, and others), and computers - including mobile texting, email, mms, voicemail, photos and/or videos. Our presentation and Q&A session will focus on what types of mobile communication flows seem "natural" in specific qualitative contexts that involve emotional or sensory experiences as well as rational thoughts, and how "natural" approaches can affect the value of key learning. Communications flows explored will include habit-based vs. new methods, non-directive versus highly directive approaches, one-way vs. two-way communications, and more.
