  3. Face-to-face interviews with industry managers, academia and other experts
  4. Data from government and private sector budgets and bidding documentation (e.g., RFP)
  5. A global network of experts and decision-makers exchanging information on a bilateral basis.
  6. Open Source information sources such as SEC 10k documents provided by stock exchange traded companies.
  7. Review of individual procurement contracts in several countries, providing info under their “freedom of information” acts.
  8. A wealth of experience and cutting-edge expertise of our team of analysts, who:
