Authors: Choosing Among Today’s Qualitative Options | User Guide
Jay Zaltzman has been a qualitative research consultant since 1994. He conducts research for clients in a wide range of fields, including website-related research, as well as high tech, healthcare, financial services, consumer packaged goods and others.
In 2010, Jay gave presentations on the topic of choosing among new research methods at the AQR/QRCA conference and the QRCA annual conference.
Jay has made it a point to keep abreast with online and remote research methods as they develop, starting as early as 1999. However, he tries to be “agnostic” when it comes to the research method: the main goal is to find answers to research questions. The most appropriate research method may be a newer one, a more traditional one, or a combination of both.
Jay was born in New York and moved to Israel as a child. He received his first qualitative research training in the Israel Defense Forces, where he trained as an interviewer of recruitment candidates. After his military service, he completed a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Tel-Aviv University. He began his career in market research after returning to the U.S.
