What others have had to say

‘Quality is a very hot topic in the field of market research. However, standard market research textbooks tend to provide readers with only a summary of the issues. Here, the authors provide readers with a comprehensive and practical guide to the factors that can influence quality and the solutions that can be adopted to improve processes and reassure clients’ Peter Mouncey, Visiting Fellow, Cranfield University School of Management   

‘With the latest revision to ISO20252 there is a need for a comprehensive review of what quality is, why it matters and how to implement a formal quality management system. This is what the authors have provided’ Richard Windle, Chairman, Market Research Quality Standards Association, UK
