As the owner of a 32-year old consulting firm with 10 very talented professionals, there are certain roles that I've gravitated to and others that someone on my team is better suited to provide. The role that clients expect of me is to help them look downfield and position their business strategically within the competitive environment. That is the first way in which the 5 topics above are all directly related: each of these topics are the highest order of strategic issues that an owner has to address.

“When we needed a research project, we called Decision Associates. They conducted the research and presented it well to our group so that all expectations were met. They were knowledgeable, not only about the research, but they did their homework on EHCA and knew what was needed at the front end. They always followed up, were organized and all of the presentations were very well done with positive results for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Decision Associates and would definitely call them again if needed.”
