What makes a strong brand? One global core coupled with sensitivity to regions and countries. Here we share our tips on optimising global customer research projects to ensure you get the balance right in an efficient way.

Richer insights

Healthcare markets are evolving and becoming increasingly competitive. Every single customer research project is a precious opportunity to improve understanding, evaluate more precisely, and better support healthcare professionals, patients and caregivers.

How do local settings and cultures impact the behaviours of healthcare professionals, patients and caregivers? And what does all this mean for developing, protecting, adjusting, and supporting a brand? Here are our 10 tips for ensuring you get the most out of your customer research.
