Why Read This Report

Understanding how and why consumers experience the drive to adopt new products can help consumer product strategists trying to sell newer products.

Consumers motivated by career, family, and entertainment experience these drives differently; understanding these differences will allow product strategists to more effectively design, market, and sell new consumer products.
