Case Description

Our client is an automotive brand that wants to optimise their brand positioning and communication strategy. During the Brandpoint automotive case, we will work with actual consumer research data on brand preferences and opinions. The available data consists of a set of respondents that have all been asked about eight random car brands. The KPI is “Would you
consider this brand when buying a car”. Other data we have are some socio-demos (like age and gender), and performance variables on a number of drivers. Drivers are aspects about a car that would make a car more attractive in the eyes of a consumer. Examples of drivers: Low price, Low maintenance costs, Luxury type car, interior design, exterior design, safety features, etc. The respondent will have answers for each of the brands whether they think that brand does well on these drivers. You will be asked to analyse this data and use modelling and other statistical techniques to find relations between consumer preferences and opinions. The results need to be translated to a strategic advice for the client.
