Defining innovation amongst market research suppliers

GreenBook asked respondents to explain their choice of insights suppliers as “most innovative” via a verbatim response and then conducted a thematic analysis via text analytics.

In the 2022 GRIT Report, GreenBook shared a selection of the full verbatim responses to give some nuance to what makes SKIM an innovative company according to market research buyers:

Why is SKIM an innovative insights agency?

  • Work with a consultative approach, adapting each solution to bring actionable insights, deep understanding of business questions
  • “They are the best in what they do, and they don’t stop improving. An example is their Unspoken methodology, taking into account reaction times

According to GreenBook, a common thread amongst the most innovative companies is “their focus on productization, either through organic development from their own IP or via M&A activity to augment their solutions.”

“Our passion for innovation remains steadfast because SKIMmers are some of the brightest minds in the insights industry – we have always challenged the status quo of research and analytics.

While the technology is quite different from the early 80s, companies are facing the similar challenges in the market. We remain committed to helping our clients improve business outcomes via the most holistic and accurate research approaches rooted in decision behavior.”

– Joris Huisman, Global Managing Director.
