With decades of experience in business and community planning, and a vast library of socioeconomic data to draw from, we have the capabilities to go beyond surface-level strategy and advice. Our grounding in research gives us a solid footing to explain the foundational causes and barriers to an issue, bring new insights and information to your organization, and identify real opportunities for change. And with extensive experience working across all major industries in Hawaii, we understand the nuances of how business is done on the islands.
Our services include:
Strategic Planning — We help you create a roadmap to guide your organization to its long-term goals.
