Secondary

Although many questions require a primary research approach, we always start our research projects with a secondary review of existing projects and data to ensure that our insights build, rather than reinvent, findings.  Yet there are some projects which come along for which a secondary review and report are all that is necessary to give answers to the questions which are being asked.  In these situations we perform extensive database reviews of all available category and related reports and produce reports that supply conclusions, advice, and direction.
