The paper, titled "Using Online Bulletin Boards to Develop High Value Corporate Strategy" was presented by Penny Mesure, at the ESOMAR Congress 2010 in Athens, Greece. The conference was held from September 12, 2010 to September 14, 2010.
"Online bulletin boards are an ideal solution for exploring the right questions with the right audiences," said Mesure. This conclusion came from a comprehensive study of a research program conducted in partnership between Philips International and Observant LLC which leveraged strategies for online market research. Mesure states, "In our work, online bulletin boards proved to be a breakthrough methodology for connecting with hard-to-reach senior management audiences. They generated the deep, high-quality feedback needed to drive strategic decisions."

As a result, online bulletin boards will be leveraged in a variety of areas to support decision making across the company. "For Philips this is a research solution that is highly flexible for internal and external stakeholders, providing high caliber insights that have driven business decision making," said Orla McGouran of Philips International.
