Thoughts on the 2012 Honomichl Report of Top 50 Market Research Companies

Posted by Leonard MurphyFriday, June 29, 2012, 6:42 am 2 Comments
The estimable Larry Gold and Jack Honomichl of Inside Research just published the 2012 Honomichl Top 50 Report (the 39th edition!), which is the perennial benchmark that the research industry uses to measure financial success. What does it tell us about the possible future of the industry?

The Honomichl Global 25: Only A Part Of The MR Story

Posted by Leonard MurphyTuesday, August 16, 2011, 22:15 pm 2 Comments
MRWeb reported today about the positive news contained within the Honomichl Report about the recovery of the Global 25, and as I pointed out previously the story is mixed at best, with some true organic growth but most recovering to 2009 levels, and a few declining further. I love the work that Jack and Larry do, but I am reminded once again that this is only a snapshot of a segment of the MR space and although helpful, it is incomplete.

Innovation and the 2010 Honomichl 50

Posted by Leonard MurphyMonday, June 27, 2011, 13:40 pm 1 Comment
The full version of the 2011 Honomichl Top 50 Report was released earlier than expected last week. We had previously looked at the Top 10 about 2 weeks ago, but I think it's useful to look at the full list and contrast it with the GRIT 50 Innovative firms to understand the relationship between innovation as a driver of revenue growth.

A Quick Take On The Honomichl Top 50 Market Research Firms for 2010

Posted by Leonard MurphyWednesday, June 15, 2011, 20:31 pm 1 Comment
MRWeb posted an analysis of the Honomichl Report. The story is obviously that revenues are up and growth is occurring; that is good news for us all. Although after 2 down years in a row, I'm not sure how much that is to truly crow about. I have not done the analysis comparing to 2007-2008 numbers yet but I suspect we're only marginally ahead of previous levels or maybe still slightly down overall. Also there is still an employment gap to fill where the industry has shed more jobs than it has produced so far in the recovery.
