The Research Pacific Group places great emphasis on effective project management processes and maintenance of high quality standards. A comprehensive “Best Practices” guide has been developed to facilitate effective project management. All employees are tested on the contents of the guide, with both test performance and project performance linked to employee compensation.

In addition, a quality feedback system is used, in which our Clients can evaluate our service. This enables us to continually better ourselves and offer clients the best management process possible.

Our project management process ensures that we have total control over the design of the study, the fieldwork quality across the region and the communications necessary with the client. Each study thus has consistency of methodology no-matter how many countries are involved while eliminating the headaches clients often face having to juggle multi-country projects.
