Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We believe partners make more possible through providing feedback on what’s working, and where we can make improvements.

The Microsoft Partner Research Panel is your opportunity to contribute to the conversation and help inform changes to make things better. If you’d like to be part of the Microsoft Research Panel, you can opt-in here and fill out a short form to get started.

The panel is made up of partners who have agreed to offer their opinions through qualitative research such as online surveys and focus groups. The feedback we receive from panel members gives us valuable insight into the partner experience and influences the development of Microsoft Partner Network resources, offers and programs. These panel surveys also give us a better sense of the global partner ecosystem.A key way we leverage the Partner Research Panel is during the creation of our practice development playbooks. At the start of each playbook, we send out a survey to panel members to get feedback on how partners are leveraging specific Microsoft products and solutions in their customer offerings. The results of that survey are shared in the playbooks. Here is an example of survey data that is included in the Cloud Migration and Modernization Playbook:

Participation in the Partner Research Panel is voluntary, anonymous and vital to our understanding of how you want to engage with us, our products and our services.

Join the Microsoft Partner Research Panel

If you’d like to be part of the Microsoft Partner Research Panel, you can opt-in here and fill out the short form to get started. We encourage all partners to participate; the broader the range of feedback we get, the better informed we are to make improvements. I encourage everyone to opt in.

We can’t overstate the value of panel, and we trust that the resulting continued refinement of Microsoft Partner Network resources, offers, and programs makes us better partners and helps us bring value to you. Moreover, it’s a great way to ensure your thoughts are heard by our leadership and teams!

We’d also like to thank our current panel members who take the time to respond and help us make informed, programmatic changes that benefit the global partner community.

Thank you for the continued partnership!
