I’m often asked, “For Net Promoter / Customer Feedback key-driver analysis which is better, correlation or regression?”  Correlation and regression each tell you different things.  The answer might be “neither is right.” Correlation shows how 2 variables are related, along with the strength of that relationship. The core output of the correlation analysis (aka Pearson’s) […]

Readers of this blog may be concerned about the above title. “Don’t change?!?  Don’t we need change in order to adopt a new program within the company?  Aren’t the resulting initiatives from VoC / CX efforts all about change?”  Well, yes and no. I’ll summarize here, and we’re pleased to have been invited to elaborate […]

Great article here in VentureBeat, Why the Internet was wrong about Ron Paul.  We’ve written many times in the past about how response bias — only looking at survey results from people that respond to your survey — skews customer feedback results (most recently here:  Net Promoter & Statistics: When Accuracy Goes Haywire, and 5 […]

Attack of the Killer Hippos

We’ve previously written about how Hippos – HIghest Paid Person’s Opinion – can damage ROI.  It’s worth calling out a recent McKinsey study titled, “A Rising Role for IT”, may have inadvertently shined the light on this through a footnote that I think is worth calling out: “…respondents say their companies are shifting decision making […]

I used to be a proud VP Marketing.  These days ‘marketing’ seems to be all about spamming people with as much noise as possible. Many Marketing organizations plod along with ~5% open rates, ~3% conversion rates, and little-to-no ability to report the real business value (results) they bring to the company.  And then they complain that […]

As a practitioner in the field of Customer Insights / Customer Experience / Net Promoter / Voice-of-the-Customer (what are we supposed to call this field, anyway?!?), I am frequently asked, “How many responses do we need to be statistically significant?” Here’s what I’ve learned after 22 years of professional experience.
