You got it right, the aim of our survey is indeed the collection of opinions that we will elaborate and use to check whether some of our assumptions are true and/or gain new insights that can give us a completely different perspective (and to respond to others, this is why we kept the questions relatively open, to give the possibility to the respondents to customised their answers to better fit what they really are or what they really do). We meant to use it as tool to reach a large geographically distributed sample quicker, since carrying on interviews with many interviewees at an international level would have required very long time, that, unfortunately, we don’t have.
For what concern the typos and the misspellings, I’m sorry and thank you for making us notice that, we will fix it.
For what concern the years of experience, we are not interested in knowing exactly how many years of experience professionals have but simply distinguish a person who is already working, from one who might have some projects experience but not a professional one. In particular, we thought that in this way answers would have been more valuable since respondents with 2/>2yrs of experience have been dealing with idea generation and creative process for some years, and thus they know in depth what are the issues arising from the process. Indeed, students and recently graduated people would probably answer on the basis of what they studied, instead of how they actually behave, reducing the degree of reliability of the answers for our purpose.
Said this, thank you for your comments, we’ll try to improve it, and thank you for having dedicated you precious time to us.
