How We are Different

We have actual industry experience.

We have held executive-level positions in strategy, product, technology, and marketing. We are familiar with the problems you face, but we also have the problem-solving ability of industry veterans. We know how to implement. Our advantage is the ability to identify the problems to be solved in a broad, one to seven-year time horizon, anticipate the obstacles to solving them, create strategies to overcome the obstacles, and execute with precision to help companies reach their goals.

Our opinions

When we express our opinions publicly, we do it with the credibility that only decades of actual industry experience can provide. We are quoted in the top news outlets and routinely appear on business TV shows. MI&S analysts also do extensive public speaking at events and trade shows, in classic webinars, and participate heavily on social media.
