Best-Practice Research for Actionable Results

Technology Forecasters’ consultants and analysts bring our clients depth and breadth of experience in the electronics and technology industries on supply chain, logistics, environmental regulations / strategy, and other operational issues.

A typical research project involves the following processes:

  • Tech Forecasters’ consulting team meets with executive/leadership team to clarify company goals, establish success metrics, and identify the issues to be addressed in the project.
  • Tech Forecasters develops a customized interview guide to be administered to the target audience (for example, key customers, lost or missed customers, suppliers, design engineers, etc.)
  • Tech Forecasters’ industry-experienced analysts conduct interviews (online, phone and/or in-person) using the customized interview guide. Interviews are often multi-lingual and span several regions depending on the data needed.
  • Tech Forecasters compiles and analyzes the data, and develops actionable recommendations. The final report may include data on trends, benchmarks, step-by-step courses of action and comprehensive data gathered during the interview process.
  • Tech Forecasters’ consultants meet with the leadership team to guide them through the research findings and discuss implications. If applicable, they will also include recommendations and step-by-step implementation plans with a suggested timetable.
