Why research is so important
Having access to accurate data has always been important but until recently, in the fields of commerce and contracting, it was hard to obtain.
Many commercial decisions relied on instinct, guesswork, or very limited sources. Business cases struggled to gain acceptance, decisions were delayed — and in worst cases — organizations took a wrong direction and were left behind.
How we can help
Drawing from our member organizations, individuals, and specialist groups, we can target the right people to assist in your research.
Interviews, online surveys, roundtable discussions and workshops are among the many ways our members are supported to gather data.
What are we asked to do?
We conduct research on a wide range of commerce and contract topics.
- Commissioned research is usually requested by member companies.
- Partnered research is mostly with universities, business schools, consultancies and can attract funding through research grants.
