Storytelling for insights, or stats? Qual or quant?

Research is...

Research is reducing the risk in business decisions: price, product, distribution and marketing. Research is being able to tell your audience who’s ahead in the election and who’s not – and why. Research is understanding how well – or poorly – public policy programs and marketing communications are working. Daves & Associates Research is … research!
