Intent HQ Chair on Changing Consumer Behavior

Holder: José Luis Nueno

The Intent HQ Chair on Changing Consumer Behavior is created with the goal of becoming a global leader in research related to the latest trends in consumer behavior around the world.

The Chair’s research will inform outreach activities focused on bringing practical capacities of executives and managers up to date to meet the demands of current and future consumers.

This is IESE’s first chair dedicated to marketing and has been possible thanks to the support of the British company Intent HQ.

Aims

  • To conduct research in order to establish a firm and reliable knowledge base that can inform management and policy approaches to consumer behavior.
  • To use this accrued knowledge in the creation of pedagogical tools (case studies, academic publications, symposia, etc.) to help executives better align their business practices with changing consumption patterns.
  • To act as a repository of leading-edge management knowledge and capabilities.
Data Platform

Data Platform

New tool to analyze consumer behavior

The chair has created a new data platform that connects academic researchers and large data sets from a growing number of companies, in order to generate valuable insights into consumer behavior.

So far, the chair has signed agreements with companies including Orange, Glovo, Elparking, Imbric, EYSA, GrupoNext, Fintonic, Atresmedia, Meliá Hoteles, Acotex, Cooltra and Bip&Drive to contribute data to the platform.

The platform has the following characteristics:

  • A secure, cloud-based platform to store and analyze big data for research into changing consumer behavior. Intent HQ, sponsor of the chair, guarantees the privacy of the data and its security through SOC2, ISO27001 and ISO27018 certifications.
  • Online secured access to the platform for researchers.
  • Researchers access fully anonymous and safe-to-use data sets tailored to their specific needs.

Companies that contribute their data to the platform:

  • Contribute to academic research and data-based insights on their sector, free of charge
  • Receive mention in references in the study as the source of data
  • The right to use the output of the studies
  • Suggest new topics and titles for the researchers to include as part of their academic studies
  • Participate in two yearly congresses organized by the Chair: one in Madrid, focused on the outputs of the studies for the data contributors, and another one in Barcelona, focused on the research and academic world. The first of these congresses will take place in Madrid in September 2022.

 

Here, testimonials from data contributors:

“Las medidas de contención para frenar la propagación del coronavirus en España provocaron un cambio de paradigma en el uso de las apps de delivery. Gracias a la colaboración con IESE pudimos analizar la información y obtener conclusiones relevantes sobre los cambios en los hábitos de consumo. Estamos muy contentos y satisfechos por los resultados del estudio. Desde Glovo, seguiremos trabajando para conectar a los usuarios con las infinitas posibilidades de sus ciudades”. Carlota Marzo, Manager de Asuntos Públicos, Glovo


“La colaboración con la Cátedra del IESE ha dado frutos no sólo académicos sino que también lo ha hecho en el ámbito industrial. En este segundo ámbito hemos ampliado nuestra visión sobre el uso de los datos y hemos colaborado en el desarrollo de algoritmos geoespaciales. En el ámbito académico estos datos han sido utilizados para el capítulo de un libro sobre ejemplos de aplicación práctica del uso del Big Data y la publicación de un artículo científico sobre modelos de Machine Learning, con lo que estoy doblemente satisfecho con la cátedra del IESE.” Javier Goikoetxea, CEO, GrupoNext


“Cuando el Profesor Nueno nos propuso colaborar con la Cátedra, inicialmente nos pareció una buena oportunidad para de contribuir a la comunidad académica en el campo de estudio del comportamiento del consumidor. Además de establecer relación con una institución académica de renombre internacional como IESE y difusión que esto podría tener. Más adelante, vimos también lo que nos podría aportar desde el punto de vista de conocimiento académico aplicable después en el desarrollo de nuevas líneas de conocimiento dentro de Fintonic. Alguna de estas nuevas líneas de conocimiento en el sector retail verá la luz pronto, lo cual nos genera una gran expectación”. Iker de los Rios, CEO, Fintonic

To gain access to the platform, researchers from IESE and other collaborating academic institutions must:

  • Be an active researcher in the field of consumer behavior
  • Present a briefing of the research study or studies that will be performed
  • In case the researcher is not attached to IESE, a collaboration agreement with their academic institution.

 

Here, testimonials from researchers:

“I’m very thankful for my collaboration with the IESE Intent HQ chair. Thanks to this collaboration I’ve been able to access unique data sets to examine marketing problems truly relevant for practitioners. The direct contact with Intent HQ has been instrumental to get to know the details and potential of the data as well as a source of inspiration.” Albert Valentí, Assistant Professor, IESE


“This is a unique initiative that provides access to large, up-to-date consumer data from different sectors.

A key issue with empirical data is that we often face limited access because we don’t have an established relationship to the data providers or we can’t access the data because of different reasons including GDPR. The present platform provides cloud-based data processing tools to run the required analysis on data that is already anonymized and prepared for our needs. This means no fighting with GDPR clauses or waiting for funding for own processing power and capabilities. A win-win for researchers and companies!” Isabelle Engeler, Assistant Professor, IESE
