the scale from here to eternity, we cover the middle range.
supply contextual descriptions or peripheral vision, more decision-oriented
than conventional academic research, wider ranging and with greater continuity
than conventional staff or consultant assignments. We neither predict nor prescribe
specific outcomes. We
generally work beyond "firefighting" range, close enough in for problems and
issues to be of concern, remote enough for them not to be foreclosed. We
do not aim to provide the latest "news flash" but, instead, the context into
which that news flash fits. Current events change very quickly—underlying forces
and trends much more slowly.
We serve you by providing
useful early warning.
