You will address just the first two steps of the market research planning process to better understand what is really involved in marketing research.
Scenario: After your first couple of months as a product line manager with the new successful startup AHP Company, you are called into the marketing department’s conference room. The marketing director announces that she has a product idea you need to research. She wants you to research the possibility of marketing a motorized wheelchair that converts into a bed since the engineering department says such a product is feasible.
