Assumptions vs. Real Data for Market Share Analysis

In a fast-paced and ever-changing world, it’s sometimes hard to take a step back and ensure that you’re making data-driven decisions. However, having worked with organized construction labor for more than 25 years, we know that working with solid data has great potential for your market share success.

Making assumptions is, by contrast, certainly easier than collecting and analyzing your data. And we don’t hesitate to admit it…making assumptions is certainly cheaper than hiring a firm to analyze the data for you.

However, the return on investment for your time or expenses – your investment in data and analysis – will continue to pay for itself over time. This is something that our clients – all long term (some for more than two decades) can attest to. For those organized labor institutions – both unions and management alike – who measure market share, the results are consistent growth over time.

Our initial video (above) focuses on why measuring market share is important. After that, we dive deeper into each of the steps that are crucial to making this measurement most effective.

The steps we will cover in the subsequent videos are: Measure, Analyze, Plan and Act.
