Capabilities / Services
Our process starts with discussing your business issues and needs and clearly defining your research objectives.
From there, we develop the research design, including methodology, target audience, timing, cost and deliverables.
We manage all aspects of field work (including developing the questionnaire, overseeing programming, deployment and tabulation), analyze the results by uncovering the stories behind the data and answering the ‘what’, ‘when’, ‘where’ and ‘why’. Findings are translated into strategic next steps.
We set up and conduct focus groups, dyads, triads and depth interviews – in person and by phone. We seek to build an understanding of an issue (e.g. the ‘how’ or ‘why’ of human behaviour, cultural or social organization) and focus on the meaning – how people make sense of their lives, experiences and their understanding of the world. We discover patterns and themes, highlighting the most prevalent while also paying attention to ‘watch outs’.
