Getting Started with Agile Research Approach

Surveys and Reporting – Get the Facts

1. Iterate

Build a body of research knowledge, with each study furthering and deepening understandings of your customers, your industry, and broader landscape. This likely means numerous small studies interspersed with a few large-scale projects across a year.

2. Focus

Precisely define the business question, pinpoint the most appropriate research approach and be very specific on the questions to address the business need. Note, this may mean getting comfortable with unasked questions.

3. Collaborate

For an agile research approach to work, everyone involved in the research—directly or indirectly, internally and externally—need to be onboard with the new processes and participate in a truly collaborative manner. This means learning from one-another and being responsive to the adapted thinking.
