Interviewing Decision Makers to Inform a New Product Strategy

Using an Expert to Avoid Bias While Conducting Research


A team at a consulting firm was conducting internal research to help validate their new product proposal. They wanted to connect with senior finance and technology decision makers at top pharma companies to understand their needs and preferences in revenue management solutions. The client also wanted to eliminate the confirmation bias that can be common in internal research.

The GLG Approach

The client partnered with GLG for a two-week research project to elicit insights from revenue management decision makers. An experienced researcher was chosen to conduct six expert interviews to gain a holistic view of the industry and present the findings back to the client team.

The experts interviewed were selected for their roles as decision makers or decision influencers for revenue management solutions at different-sized pharma companies.


The researcher conducted six expert interviews to uncover opportunities in the space, requirements for new entrants in the market, and the most valued aspects of revenue management solutions. The findings qualified the client team’s proposal and was used to support their product strategy.
