The advantage of Panelist activity

The growth rate and development of private enterprise are faster in China in past 20 years, and that are thanks to the leadership and ability of founder. However, with the scale of enterprise’s expansion, the managerial problems are emerged at the same time. The panelist activity can be a method to solve these managerial problems and the advantage of it can be concluded in three aspects :

  1. More professional and rational way to solve the problems
  2. Best solution generating from contending discussion
  3. More resources from the panel and can bring more opportunities

Besides, according to seminar of Think Tanks of 2013, the advantages of panelist activity is, it understand the demands of target customers clearly, which are reliable basis for decision-making. Secondly, the decisions of panelist are focusing on the coordination and harmony of main problems or obstacles in the enterprise, which is good for decision-making. Thirdly, timeliness and predictability are also the advantage of Panelist activity, which is timesaving for the customers. Finally, the advantage of Panelist activity is different experts who have the international and historical experiences are good for decision-making, mistakes should be reduced, which is the important premise of successful decisions.

The focus group or the private consultant, are also other ways to provide the advice or solutions to the enterprises. The focus group can provide the different point of views for the customers, which means it is a way to collect various opinions from different people. However, the drawback of focus group is obvious, since they cannot make the final decision for the customers. Other methods like private consultant or the one-to-one interview can make decision and provide the final solutions for customers. Nevertheless, the limitation is the point of view from single person is partial, and mistakes might easily be made. Therefore, the Panelist is more suitable method than focus group and one-to-one interview for customers, because it’s not only more effective and accurate but it can be customized according to the customers’ demand.
