Research Tailored To You

We require two things of our research: First, it has to be interesting enough to engage someone outside its industry. Second, it has to be relevant enough that you'll use it this week.

To us, Research is practice. Knowing our Clients' pain points helps us to understand the field where our Clients do battle. Working through those issues in published research helps us learn alongside our Clients. And having an experience with these challenges and opportunities together gives us a view of the field that few ever really stop to appreciate. We know what the field smells like because we've been there fighting alongside our Clients.

Case In Point

At DTSpade, our organization’s vision is two parts. First, IMAGINE OUR CITY. What could our city become with more of what we love and less of what we hate? What would it look like if everything was on the table-not just what was possible? Can you Imagine that?

Second, BUILD THAT CITY. Each of us brings specific gifts, but sometimes those gifts feel disconnected from success. How does a designer solve the refugee crisis? How does a real estate broker heal a city? How can an assistant make government accountable? DTSpade is the bridge to that city. Here's how we do it:

  • Imagine Our City with Integrity

In the same transaction, DTSpade helped Fulton County to lower its operating expenses and provide a better delivery of care to its HIV, STD and Hep-B patient populations. And that’s just the beginning of the story…

  • Imagine Texas Without Tralongo Dental Solutions’ Acquisition of Southern Dental

    Southern Dental started as a family-run business and expanded into 10 dental offices throughout Texas. They had considered a sale on and off again for years, but by 2015, the situation had become dire. Without an equity partner and Dental Solutions expertise, the offices wouldn’t make it through the summer.
