Consumer Needsfinding and Market Insighting

Course Name Consumer Needsfinding and Market Insighting

Price: Php 11,800

Management practitioners know that to create impactful strategies they need to respond to their customers' needs and differentiate from their competitors' strategies and strengths. Unfortunately, customers' cannot easily articulate, let alone identify the needs and motivations that influence their purchase behaviors. Needfinding and Sensemaking are acts of discovering people's explicit and implicit needs and comprehending why certain companies resonate better with customers. 

In this course, you will learn and practice a new kind of consumer and market insighting that is anchored on human sciences like psychology and anthropology instead of hard sciences. These disciplines have developed effective ways to understand how people experience themselves and their environments. 

In the end, you will not only identify new market insights and opportunities, you also emerge with a more profound understanding of your customers and competitors. 


After the course, you will:

1. Generate strategic consumer insights based on identifying unsatisfied and deep seated needs and wants;

2. Unlock and decode non-articulated and unconscious psychological imprints that influence consumer behavior;

3. Identify the specific strategies and programs of your competitor’s that resonate with customers;

4. Identify the vulnerabilities and weaknesses of your competitors; and 

5. Develop new ways to segment your customers and competitors.
