“Well, in our country,” said Alice, “you’d generally get to somewhere else – if you ran very fast for a long time.” “A slow sort of country!” said the Queen. “Now, here, you see it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.”

MFA Simple Truths: Continuous Improvement and On-Going Development are the only ways to stay relevant.
“What you see depends on which window you are looking from.”

MFA Simple Truths: What you learn from the analysis depends on how you do it. Framing a problem well is half of the solution.
One wise man said: When I see a yellow leaf, I think something is wrong with it. When I see a tree with yellow leaves, I think something is wrong with the tree. But when I see the whole forest with yellow trees, I know it is fall!
MFA Simple Truths: When you get too close, you can't see the whole picture. You must focus on the whole problem to derive a comprehensive solution.
Seven blind men want to know what an elephant looks like. One man touches the tail and thinks it looks like a rope, another man touches the leg and thinks it looks like a tree and so on. Blind to all perspectives but their own, the men are incapable of imagining the whole animal.
MFA Simple Truths: A business must be managed as a whole. Optimizing each part in a silo leads to suboptimal solutions.

“Market Fusion Analytics has helped our fast food restaurant franchise become smarter about Return on Media Spend (ROMS). But beyond just media spend, we are now understanding the impact that all of our various decisions – from pricing to store openings to crew availability – can have on volume and sales, from both a positive and negative perspective.
Market Fusion Analytics has also helped evangelize the value of these tools to our senior management, which is crucial in order to generate confidence in the decisions that need to be taken as a consequence of these insights. Media ROI is now a metric we will track and compensate on going forward, for both our internal teams and external agencies.”

“What is worth highlighting is the innovative analytical framework (category, portfolio, brand) that went through all parts of business enterprise (marketing, innovation, shelf management, trade, price, uncontrollables). This was truly a custom design of marketing mix (not a run of the mill cookie cutter model) based on spending a ton of time trying to understand how can marketers make better decisions in the reality of our business and culture. By taking this approach, MFA was able to link to business issues, recommendations on activation and passion to influence decisions. We have never looked back since.”

“There are three areas that MFA brings that have not been replicated in other analytic/marketing strategy companies I have seen: driving strategic findings to activation, innovative approach to problem solving, senior leader business experience involved in the day-to-day modeling.

The associates at MFA are true business partners.”
