Our core expertise is qualitative research! With all our team members speaking multiple languages, we are truly international researchers. IKM offers its experiences in the coordination of international projects for the composition and adjustment of questionnaires and for the briefing of interviewers


Create and improve your innovation culture by integrating your internal clients into the full process! We experience a growing need for the researcher to also act as moderator for companies’ internal innovation processes. To this end, we lead creative workshops based on the CPSI process.


We know that acceptance of research results often depends on understanding their full implications on your organization and existing processes. Therefore our reports are action oriented and we offer workshops and consulting advice beyond the traditional standards to fully leverage your results.
