"I've worked with Sheila Robbins for 10 years on many projects for IDC's largest and most important clients. Sheila consistently delivers excellent qualitative research. She is an excellent interviewer with the ability to drill down to the most important information, and is skilled in targeting the “right” person in the “best companies” for research.
Sheila's extensive experience and consistent high quality performance in planning and executing qualitative research places her as one of IDC’s most important "go to" research partners. I highly recommend Robbins Research for qualitative research.”
Andrew Ware Vice President of Consulting, IDC
"A new product roll-out led me to look for a professional researcher who could identify, reach, interview, and analyze senior executives. The target individuals were executive leaders of a notoriously hard-to-reach class of firm. They were obsessive about their secrecy. I needed a researcher who thinks like an executive and who has tenacity, diplomacy, and a can-do attitude. My search led me to Sheila Robbins. I was delighted with Sheila’s results.
Working region by region, Sheila covered an entire first market for a roll-out. She got the information we needed, analyzed it to discern conditions we hadn’t detected, and packaged her results so we could use them immediately. Sheila is rare in her field because she thinks about the challenge facing her clients, sorts through the possibilities, and helps find a solution. I consider Sheila our research partner, a regular member of our team."
