In focus groups, discussion happens among group of people and usually scripted questions or topics being asked. These discussions usually happens in war rooms having video conference facility and takes one or two hours with at least 3 groups involved to get balanced output. Focus groups do not provide accurate and reliable statistical data because they do not represent wider target audience. However they provide more accurate subjective data as compare to surveys.
3. Personal Interview:
Personal interviews are like focus groups, instead of group discussion, one to one discussion happens. These contains unstructured, open ended questions and lasts about an hour. Focus groups and personal interviews are best way to light on the issues related to new products and service development.
