While others deliver lots of data
with limited insights . . .

We are building the firm we could never find.  We are client-side researchers. We have run Fortune 500 research teams. We have been where you are.  Our clients get . . .

 

Real insights, not tons of data in a big PowerPoint report.

Experienced client-side researchers on your project; not entry-level analysts who don’t have a clue what you do on the client-side.

Management ready findings; you won’t have to re-write when you send to your management.

 

We are always learning, growing, testing new technologies, never stagnant. Last year’s approach may not be the best this year. This is why we are not your father’s market research firm. Let us be yours.

Client-Side Researchers

We are client-side researchers building the firm we could not find. We are better able to deliver what you need because we understand.
We have team members who have led Fortune 500 research teams.
This helps our clients in all phases of the project.

Real insights, not
tons of data

We solve problems, not just give you data. Even with complex projects, the findings and your resulting direction should be clear.

Innovative Solutions

We didn’t set out to create innovative solutions just to be different. But due to the combination of our client-side experience, new insights from Behavioral Economics, new online tools that are now available, we have new, innovative tools to better solve our client’s questions.
You know when a research firm puts a name on a method that everyone already does – these are not that.

The project is not over until you get what you need

Have you ever been told by your research firm that they have used up all their hours on your project and they will have to charge you more? Us too.
We believe you hired us to answer your question, not just to give you a PowerPoint deck. Thus, the project is not over until we answer your question. It may mean more data analysis, re-working the findings, or more presentations. You will not get charged more if we underestimated the effort.

Leverage Behavioral Economics

Behavioral Economics learnings have been so revolutionary, Nobel Prizes have been awarded to these researchers.
True North leverages these findings to design innovative solutions. Unfortunately, most market research has been designed the same way for decades – and inconsistent with how we now know how humans make choices.

Management Ready Findings

Have you ever had to re-write reports before you can send them to your management? Us to. That doesn’t happen with True North. In fact, it’s not uncommon for True North to present the highest levels of the organization.

We have led Fortune 500 Insight teams

Your entire experience working with True North will be different. Our focus is not giving you data but giving you management-ready insights. This is why we frequently present to the highest levels of management.

 

The project isn’t over until you get what you need

We understand that delivering a PowerPoint deck is not the same as delivering insights. Our job is not complete until you get what you need. That may mean additional analysis or more presentations – without being charged more.
