The 3 Question Survey Method

Making surveys is now easier than ever. There are free tools for creating web-surveys and e-mailing is easy. The unfortunate result are an avalanche of  poorly designed surveys. The 3QM is an approach to better surveys.

I am a statistician by training, I have an University degree and I have worked in research. Today surveys have been more of a sidetrack for me, I am mainly an IT Service Management consultant and trainer.  I have created this method for myself and I thought it might be useful to try to spread it. It is simple and easy method.

My plan is to write the method here, on this website. All comments and questions are welcome.
