Research

To get useful answers, you need to know how to identify the right questions and how to acquire and process the feedback to those questions. Bureau Wyser is proficient in qualitative and quantitative, and various hybrid research methods.

A solid research method
We have extensive experience in setting up a focused research methodology that guarantees that the research will be reliable, feasible and relevant. At the same time, we make sure the research framework matches your specific wishes and needs. We also place your research in the context of relevant scientific data and theories. This allows you to gain more relevant and applicable knowledge from your research.

Implementation and analysis
Besides setting up and performing research, we also help clients to utilize the results.

For instance, we can implement your research results, together with specialized consultants in our network. We can also provide relevant research data to academics that specialize in the topic. This way we ensure that the research is not just valuable to the client, but gets a broader reach.
