The Center for Applied Innovation conducts a variety of Qualitative and Quantitative research and analysis for our customers using a variety of methodologies. Our Qualitative research utilizes methods of inquiry employed in disciplines including the social sciences, and also market research.  Our Qualitative researchers gather an in-depth understanding of human behavior and the reasons that govern such behavior. We specialize in human factors research and analysis investigating the why and how of decision making, not just what, where, when.  We have special expertise in human cognition and complex teams systems particularly regarding the effects of stress and operating effectively in high stress environments.

Our quantitative research involves systematic empirical investigation of social phenomena via statistical, mathematical or numerical data or computational techniques. In doing so CAI members develop and employ mathematical models, theories and/or hypotheses pertaining to phenomena. The process of measurement is central to our quantitative research by providing the fundamental connection between empirical observation and mathematical expression of quantitative relationships. We have particular expertise in Measures of Performance, Measures of Effectiveness and related performance and predictive analysis.
