Knowing that accomplishing goals requires mutually motivated individuals, Starboard believes that with any task, the work of the leader is to set the stage and create an environment that enables the team to effectively run the ship.

Starboard’s biggest products? New ways of thinking and acting; furthering clients on their continuous path to organizational improvement; quantitative and qualitative research; and assisting clients in envisioning their future and articulating the steps that will get them there.

Whether you need someone to lead you through a strategic plan, to do market research, to forge ties with City Hall or to create a well-executed ad campaign, we excel on projects big and small, with an ever-bending approach that is driven by what you want to accomplish and is receptive to new opportunities, revealing our trademark Starboard agility.

From fact-finding and research to the processing of information, from the ideation/creation of the goal to implementing the program and the measurement of its results, Starboard can bring your project full circle or can tackle just one leg of the process — or focus on anywhere in between. And we don’t just deal in hard numbers: We can measure internal and external customer attitudes and perceptions, and not just interpret the results, but make recommendations on where to invest in order to see improvement.
