  • Understanding Client Needs

    Our projects all begin with a diligent effort to clearly understand our client’s research needs and expectations. We work very hard to understand all the issues that motivate our clients to seek independent, objective research support.

  • Teamwork

    Teamwork is the core of McKinley Research’s business philosophy. We assemble project-specific teams with the skills and experience necessary to give our clients the greatest return on their investment in research.

  • Communication

    Frequent communication with our clients throughout the project is an important ingredient in success. We keep our clients updated and informed.

  • Product Refinement

    We always provide clients the opportunity to review draft material, to insure the final work product will meet or exceed their expectations. We’re not done until we’ve met our clients’ needs.

  • Delivery

    We value the opportunity to help clients communicate to stakeholders the results of our work, through presentations, design of attractive summary documents, or other communications tools.
