Qualitative Feedback

Unveiling the 'Why' Behind the Numbers

While quantitative data is important, qualitative feedback often provides the most valuable insights. It allows stakeholders to express their thoughts and feelings in their own words, revealing nuances that might be missed in numerical ratings alone.

Sopact Sense leverages advanced natural language processing to analyze qualitative feedback, automatically identifying patterns and themes in respondents' comments.

Crafting Impactful Feedback Survey Questions

The heart of any feedback survey lies in its questions. Here are some tips for creating effective survey questions:

Quantitative Questions

Quantitative questions provide measurable data that can be easily analyzed and compared over time. Examples include:

  • Likert scale questions: "On a scale of 1-5, how satisfied are you with our program?"
  • Multiple choice: "Which of the following services did you find most valuable?"
  • Rating questions: "Please rate the effectiveness of our staff on a scale of 1-10."

Qualitative Questions

Qualitative questions offer deeper insights and context. Some effective types include:

  • Open-ended questions: "How has our program impacted your life?"
  • Follow-up probes: "Can you provide an example of how this affected you?"
  • Hypothetical scenarios: "If you could change one thing about our service, what would it be and why?"

Survey Feedback

A Continuous Improvement Loop

Effective use of survey feedback creates a continuous improvement loop:

  • Collect feedback through surveys
  • Analyze data with Sopact Sense
  • Generate actionable insights
  • Implement changes based on insights
  • Collect new feedback to assess impact of changes

This cycle ensures that organizations remain responsive to stakeholder needs and continuously improve their services

Feedback Survey Example

Putting Theory into Practice

Let's look at a feedback survey example using Sopact Sense:

  • Net Promoter Score (NPS): "On a scale of 0-10, how likely are you to recommend our service to a friend or colleague?"
  • Follow-up: "What is the main reason for your score?"
  • Customer Satisfaction (CSAT): "How satisfied are you with your recent experience?"
  • Improvement question: "What one thing could we do to improve your experience?"
  • Specific feature feedback: "How useful did you find our new X feature?"

Sopact Sense would analyze responses to these questions, identifying trends in the quantitative data and key themes in the qualitative responses.SAT scores, and a summary of key themes from open-ended responses.</visual_prompt>

Analyzing Feedback Survey Results

Collecting data is only the first step. To derive value from your feedback surveys:

  1. Share results: Communicate findings with stakeholders to demonstrate that their input is valued.
  2. Develop an action plan: Create concrete steps to address issues raised in the feedback.
  3. Follow up: Inform participants about changes made based on their feedback.
  4. Conduct regular surveys: Establish a consistent feedback cycle to track progress and identify new areas for improvement.
