Welcome to Lodestar! We celebrate our sixteenth anniversary this year with a renewed emphasis on the mission that initially launched the firm – using research and other forms of business intelligence to help our clients improve operational performance, grow their businesses, and prepare for future success in rapidly changing marketplaces.
We achieve our work through a rapidly growing and interdisciplinary set of core practices, products, and industry practices. And, we continue to invest heavily in new product and service R&D in order to more effectively help our clients address their most complex and critical business challenges.
Our client roster continues to grow and now spans industry verticals such as healthcare, financial services, publishing & media, professional services, technology, manufacturing, public sector, and consumer package goods.
The Lodestar team has grown to over 30 Ph.D. level researchers, analysts, industry specialists, strategists, consultants, innovation specialists, futurists, and technologists as well as a global network of alliance partners. To learn more about the team’s recent work, review some of our thought leadership and see recent client “mini” case studies embedded in our various practice pages.
Because the breadth and depth of our services continues to evolve, in late 2013 our firm’s partners voted to change our identity to Lodestar Advisory Partners and incorporate the new tagline Putting Intelligence To Work. We believe this positioning preserves the heritage of Lodestar but also better captures the essence of our work today – to become trusted advisors to our clients and help them achieve superior business outcomes by putting business intelligence in all its forms to more effective use.
To learn more about Lodestar’s capabilities and how we can help you “move the performance needle” inside your company, contact us for more information. And, please visit us again from time to time as we update these pages regularly.
