Research and Analysis

Get answers without legions of consultants.

Our projects are always designed and delivered to a single client and tailored to reflect the individuality of that client and the unique elements of the engagement. Projects range from multi-month, ongoing research and monitoring services to brief, intense multi-day engagements. We never take on a project unless we are confident that we will exceed client expectations.

Yes, Clew really works on both long and short studies. Sometimes you need an answer quickly, without an RFP, without extensive scope and analysis meetings, without kicking off a multi-month study. You need actionable research now, not next month. Perhaps you need only to interview a very small universe of sources – perhaps just one individual – to validate a rumor, investigate an assumption or confirm a belief.

You might find yourself sitting on dated research, wondering what updated findings might look like. You might require intelligence about major enterprise sales prospects, unique human sources or other emerging assets. You might find your business case lacking insightful market research, expert opinions, demographic data or other material.
