Maxdiff (also known as Best/Worst Scaling) is a technique widely offered by market research companies. This workshop explains the different contexts where each technique is useful, considers aspects of design including sample size, consumer presentation issues and constraints. The modelling of data from these studies is illustrated using XLSTAT software.
