The IIAR “Tragic Quadrant”

Last year, as part of the 2014 IIAR Analyst of The Year Survey, we invited analyst relations professionals to rate their favourite industry analyst individuals and the firms they worked for. More than 60 individual organisations responded to our survey. We were interested to see if we could do further analysis on the data that was collected.

When we set out to do the IIAR Analyst of the Year (with Helen Chantry), we always had envisioned doing a Magic Quadrant of analyst firms. This year the survey provided us with further information which we have been able to breakdown and analyse to provide a more detailed understanding of how analyst relations professionals perceive the relevance, impact and reachability of industry analyst firms. We are not claiming that this is an exhaustive study. Rather it simply opens a new (slightly cheeky – hence the notion of “Tragic Quadrant”) window onto the analyst landscape, where we attempt to rank industry analyst firms by impact, relevance and ease to do business with.

Don’t forget to vote – IIAR Analyst of the Year 2012!

If you’ve not yet voted then please take this opportunity to give your top-rated analyst a boost and nominate them for this year’s IIAR 2012 Analyst of the Year and IIAR Analyst Firm of the Year.

We’ve worked hard to make this year’s survey a robust reflection of AR pros’ perspective on top-rated analysts and analyst firms but we need your help. It’s only an accurate reflection if you vote so please take just five minutes out while you enjoy your lunch or coffee/tea break to answer a few questions.

The winner will be the analyst with the highest overall rating from multiple responses, rather than the analyst that attracts the highest number of votes.

IIAR Analyst Firm of the Year will be run using the same format only we’ve split out the large global analyst firms from other smaller and independent firms so you can vote for multiple analyst firms.

All marketing communication professionals who regularly engage with analysts – IIAR members and non–members – are welcome to take part and all individual votes will be treated as strictly confidential.

The survey will be open until Friday 10th August with the results to be announced in September. There’s not long to go now so please do vote. Any questions feel free to contact me.
