The Power of CIMS Research

CIMS researchers have been breaking new ground since 1984. Our research projects include those initiated by CIMS researchers as well as those undertaken on behalf of a corporate sponsor or client to address a challenge unique to that business. The results of many of these studies are available to the public. Below is a list of research projects by CIMS since 2000. To view all CIMS research, select “view all”; you can also search by researcher name, core competency or management dimension and further narrow your research result by date range. To view all research based on a specific criteria, leave date ranges blank.
