Research Support


We build our clients' ability to identify, develop, implement and evaluate strategic processes through advice, facilitation, training workshops, coaching and mentoring. Through a process of mutual input, we provide specific solutions for strategy definition as well as operational improvement processes such as capturing efficiencies, change management, competitive analysis, business intelligence and people management. 

We offer qualitative and quantitative research data collection and analysis to gather strategic business information. This can be facilitated through conducting in-person focus groups, designing and conducting surveys, or conducting competitive analysis. We can also provide strategy development training sessions to aid in creating a research or business plan.
