Trade Associations

Industry trade associations, and government-sponsored trade groups, often require strategic guidance to shape their internal efforts. Industry and marketplace changes, whether the result of new technology or regulatory scrutiny, are requiring these associations to provide cutting edge services for their members or supporting bodies.

Trade associations require guidance to assist with them with the challenges and opportunities on the road ahead. Here are some ways we’ve helped:

Example engagements:

  • Support a trade group within a foreign government with analysis and recommendations regarding automotive industry manufacturing trends and opportunities through a series of topic-specific reports.
  • Provide a national trade association with a detailed industry analysis and white paper substantiating the strategic importance of current industry trends.
  • For the National Automobile Dealers Association, researched an extensive report on the future of automotive retailing in the USA.
  • Investigated the causes of the persistent success of CarMax for a European business school case study.
