How We Work

Customized Saudi market insights, not published data

We are well aware that each company has unique needs and capabilities. Hence, we don't force-fit our findings into frameworks or strategy templates that were designed to fit the needs of other companies. We approach every assignment with a fresh mindset and an approach tailored to each client's specific situation.

Saudi commercial knowledge and actionable market intelligence

We employ management consultants who gather facts straight from the marketplace. Primary source research and extensive fieldwork tap into the expertise of industry insiders in a way that enables us to provide clients with the intelligence and confidence necessary to capitalize on the opportunities in Saudi.

Global skills, local flavor

We are fully responsible for our engagements. In order to guarantee deadlines, quality, and confidentiality, we never outsource our work. Our team is comprised of in-house, full-time Middle East consultants and executives with language fluency, cultural skills, and the broad industry knowledge required to provide consistently excellent engagements.
