  • Whom to invite, how many, and how to facilitate the discussion.
  • The role of the facilitator and where to hold the focus group.
  • How to record the discussion and what to expect from participants.
  • How to formulate the discussion questions and length of time to hold the focus group.
  • How to engage participants, analyze the discussion content, and obtain useful results.
