Bonneville Research publishes the Monday Report weekly and distributes it without charge to industry and government leaders faces a rapidly changing world in which it is difficult to distinguish the important long-term trends from the noise - leaders who are seeking objective information about the evolving business and government environment around us.

Much management information is freely available through the Internet; but the insight to drive action is not.

Bonneville Research believes that not only management consultancies, but all professional- services firms - auditing, law, banking - must do more than offer advice. Clients want tangible outcomes with superior execution.

Successful execution, in turn, requires foresight; and the articles reproduced and data presented in the Monday Report are intended to provide the leaders of companies and governments with such foresight.

Bonneville Research serves clients who know the magnitude of the challenges they face. Bonneville Research knows they are not looking for rubber stamps. They need advisors who have the courage of their convictions, who will tell clients what they need to hear. And these leaders are looking for ways to create and maintain successful enterprises, even if that means learning to synthesize contradictory perspectives from multiple places.

In the Western United States, we are experiencing a serious economic slowdown. But in challenge and adversity can come innovation and advantage.

The Bonneville Research mission is to serve the senior management of the major regional institutions, whether they are businesses, governments, or not-for- profit organizations.

We are a company where people can create advantage for clients and set their own destiny wherever the work calls them. We often form teams of diverse colleagues who are capable and respectful of one another, and who, above all, are people of the world, people of the region, people above parochialism.

Our values run deep at Bonneville Research. We look forward to the opportunities and challenges of the next 32 years.
