As board members of CRIC, the Canadian Research Insights Council, we’re pleased to share that CRIC is endorsing a certification program for Canadian researchers. The Certified Analytics and Insights Professional (CAIP) designation will allow skilled individual researchers to demonstrate their commitment to high standards and ethics of practice within Canada. More news will be forthcoming so watch for that.
And this month on our blog, we’ve tackled how to design telephone interviews that generate top quality data, and because there is a yin to every yang, we also covered the advantages of qualitative research as well as the disadvantage of qualitative research. We hope you find those posts helpful.
As always, if you’d like to chat about potential projects, please feel free to get in touch with us.
Until next time,
Carol, Jason, and the entire CanView team
