Strategic consulting firm Connecting for Results (CFR) opens a research department. To help provide a better understanding of the current print landscape, the company is collecting and analyzing data to help printers plan for the future.
Led by Howard Conway, the department will leverage CFR’s ability to define requirements, collect, distill, and analyze data to provide insights that support an organization’s efforts to develop strategy, support marketing and new business development, recruitment activity and merger, sale, and acquisition activity.
These findings will be specific to the graphic arts industry, helping leaders across North America to have a better understanding of the current climate.
“The industry is always changing, especially in the last few years, and we were looking for a way to measure the trends as they happen. Keeping a finger on the pulse helps us to provide our clients with the most current information available,” said Gord Griffiths, CEO and president.
“It’s easy to make assumptions or believe misconceptions. Having the facts can lead to profound insights and help our clients to make better decisions about their business,” said Howard Conway, operational strategy specialist.
To date, one published report explores the M&A landscape in Canada and is available upon request. At the 2023 Graphics Canada Expo, CFR presented the results of the company’s 2023 Industry Survey, completed by printers across the industry. The company’s research services are also available to provide insights in the areas of recruitment, company culture, and leadership development.
