Forward Economic Thinking

Research

S
ince GROWTHMAP’s inception, research has been at the core of our work. Whether identifying trends, searching for opportunities, identifying best practices, making comparisons, or locating resources, our staff continually seeks the most complete and most recent sources of data. The ability to communicate the meaning of data is equally important.

We know that the majority of decision makers in business and in government want clear answers and explanations regarding important issues. GROWTHMAP is your best bet when it comes to making the point and communicating it to leaders, workers, customers, volunteers, regulators, inspectors, administrators, elected officials and the general public.

The following are some of the types of research we implement for your business or town/city/region/province:

Needs Assessments
To fulfill needs, first we must know what they are. GROWTHMAP can conduct a general needs assessment to identify overall local economic development needs.

Demographic Profiles
A local economy is made up of people. By knowing the skills, strengths and weaknesses of its residents, a local/regional economy can best decide its future.
Feasibility Studies
Plans for revitalization can only work if they are feasible. These studies figure out if you have the right resources to complete a certain project.

Statistically Valid Surveys
Make sure that the information you are using is correct. The data can help you foresee obstacles, guide your process, and better meet the needs of your community.
Focus Groups
It is beneficial to know what others are thinking. These provide insights that are necessary to your project’s success.

Economic Forecasting

All organisations must deal effectively with change and plan for the future. Knowledge of the speed, direction and level of change in regional and local economies is vital.

To meet the challenge GROWTHMAP ’s modeling capability and bottom-up approach provides accurate and reliable customized forecasts.
