Selecting best ideas for new product development

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsConference paper (refereed)Researchpeer-review


Selecting best concepts from numerous candidates requires a large sample and is time-consuming. This study adopts Generalizability Theory to compare psychometric quality and predictive accuracy of the traditional sequential monadic test and Adaptive Concept Screening (ACS). The data were made available by a packaged goods company using sequential monadic test and ACS among two independent groups of respondents to screen the same 50 product concepts. The results indicate that ACS requires a significant smaller sample of respondents to achieve a necessary minimum G-coefficient for decision-making and offers a more discriminating and reliable solution for early stage concept screening.
