As a community college, our budget is tight, and it is often difficult to create buy-in for new or on-going initiatives. My institution had several major projects underway that required buy-in, primary data and action. By having Hanover Research conduct a research study, skills needs analysis, and/or focus group and gather data for us, I was able to present a fuller, impartial perspective in the form of a report to other stakeholders, including our President. The return on investment with Hanover has been excellent. Within one year we collaborated on a handful of projects, each targeting a specific area of the college, and all led to action. This allowed us to spread the resources and share beyond our individual departments and divisions.
