addition to our in-depth research capabilities, we have an internal capacity
for fact-finding which we can make available to Affiliates in a limited way.
We can, for instance:
a snapshot of most companies, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures,
and contract awards; new products and services; financial statistics; competition;
and legal and regulatory involvements.
- Help your staff or consultants
get started putting together an overview of an industry or market niche, including
players, competition, size, etc.
- Survey the business,
regulatory, legal, and marketing press for a quick overview of a hot topic.
resources include: Access to the enormous Harvard and Boston Public Library
systems (as well as many other library catalogues) via the Harvard OnLine Library
Service; our own in-house library, which contains current and historical literature
on information policy, as well as standard and specialized reference books;
familiarity with most of the publicly available on-line databases; and proficiency
in Internet research. Our special strength, however, is our ability to discover
and contact expert sources of information, in government, industry, and academia—that
is, to find out who knows what and how to reach them.
skill at combining expertise in using these data-gathering tools with our knowledge
of the subject matter allows us to zero in on the important information quickly.
