The Marketing Research Guide carries readers step-by-step through the complete marketing research process, providing worksheets, sample proposals, questionnaires, and a copy of a final report to give insight into the tools and techniques of marketing research. It is ideal for managers who must negotiate, evaluate, and use marketing research as a part of the decision-making process; for individuals involved in the research process who need to review marketing research procedures or find examples of specific techniques; and as a college text for courses in marketing research, especially those that focus on conducting actual marketing research project. Worksheets at the end of each chapter help you develop outlines of your own marketing research projects, while the appendixes provide examples that help you visualize what your reports should look like. Another useful feature is the description of the major forecasting, sampling, and analysis techniques without the use of mathematical formulas - a quality sure to be appreciated by marketers and those ambivalent toward mathematics.
