The Future of Insights According to GfK

David Krajicek, CEO, Consumer Experience, NA, GfK, took the
keynote stage this morning at TMRE 2015 to share some key takeaways from GfK’s
Future of Insights Survey
that is being released at the conference this
week.
‘At no other time in history have we had information that
allows us to better understand human behavior. But, are we able to use this data
to its full potential to understand our consumers? Where is market research
going’? Krajicek said.
Accordng to Krajicek, market researchers really need to
understand that the future
of insights
is today. So, what do we do? First, appreciate and understand
that date-driven decision making is needed. And we need to understand that the
collection, curation and communication of insights will fundamentally change
over the next few years. Secondly, we need to align with a few imperatives and
pain points that the insights industry need to deliver on in the next two
years. We need to realign in the right ways that will keep us innovating as an industry.
The five key
imperatives include:
??        
We need to walk, run and chew gum at the same
time ‘ There is a struggle to balance a need for innovative methodologies with
the desire to generate insights faster.
??        
Focus on return on insights ‘ Clients are three
times more likely to focus on replacing traditional market research, but with
what? Buyers are looking to replace the traditional mix of what they do, with
something completely different.
??        
Develop talent for tomorrow, today ‘ Filling through
leader’s shoes while keeping pace with innovation and identifying the right
talent while keeping pace with consumers.
??        
Embrace the changing currency of insights ‘ By 2017
passive data will be as important a source of insights as direct questioning.
??        
Drive activation through powerful and impactful
stories – 30 percent believe that storytelling is the biggest gap in the
industry.


TMRE attendees
received a brief summary of top line findings during Krajicek’s session.
