Making Sense of Multivariate Data:- Multivariate Methods for Market Research

Product code: MAR3-1

Duration: 1 - 3 days

What you will gain from this course

You will learn the purpose of each technique used in research, the data structures required and interpretation of the key statistical outputs. We will also discuss how the results should be communicated to a non technical audience.

Only basic statistical knowledge is assumed – e.g. means, standard deviations, significance testing.

Course Summary
This training explains the purpose of each technique, how to interpret the statistical outputs and the data structures required. We illustrate the use of the techniques using case studies.

Access to a general statistics package is required to take part in the course workshops and have a go yourselves at analys­­ing some data to fully understand how to apply the methods. We recommend XLSTAT, SPSS or JMP® but can also advise on the appropriateness of other software packages. Usually free demo versions can be used for the training if the software is not already available, so no purchases are necessary.

We can build a customised training programme to suit your needs in terms of both the software being used and the application areas. We build the training programme from the following list of options after discussion between the client and the trainer.
