"Never mistake activity for achievement." - John Wooden

Our industry track record is unequaled. Application of our methodology has produced a higher product success ratio than any other independent 'developer' or consulting firm in academic publishing. On twelve occasions, projects in which we have been involved have been named "products of the year" by their respective companies.

We are confident that we have conducted more qualitative (in-depth) research with college professors and students over the past 23 years than any other firm. For example, we have arranged, moderated, and gathered data in over 300 focus groups, each with an average of 10 participants. We have conducted over 50 reviewer conferences. Our research has spanned over 20 disciplines and 50 courses. The success of our methodologies led the management of McGraw-Hill to engage our firm on two separate occasions to conduct comprehensive training of the entire editorial staff within their higher education division.

More recently, we have conducted over 20 instructor and student focus groups that were dedicated to the design, development and use of digital resources (see our "Services" description for more details).
