At this degree, the consumers to whom the qualitative learn is addressed (e. g. , product managers at Telecomob) don't but depend upon specific patron profiles. the final suggestion is that consulting shoppers is essentially approximately asking them to specific their views—for instance, on a brand new product idea. ninety two Convoking the patron in individual: the focal point staff impression The illustration of the consumer-to-be-interviewed is comparatively obscure at this degree.
