Where Clients Benefit

For over a decade, Navanti Group’s mission has been to deliver information through on-demand analytical reports, with clients benefiting from subject matter expertise and near real-time data on atmospherics, conflict, and population trends throughout Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Central Asia, the Levant, and Eastern Europe. Through primary research, publicly available information, and open-source analysis, Navanti’s subject matter experts advise on cultural nuances and answer client driven requests for information in areas of food security, civil society development, peace and conflict, and governance. Each deliverable typically includes imagery, maps, and/or data analysis covering an array of topics including target audiences, local economic conditions, infrastructure, media, humanitarian needs, and socio-cultural assessments.

Why We Are Different

Our Differentiator is that our team has extensive experience managing data collection and understanding cultural norms for difficult environments, including extremely remote locations and conflict zones. Our tenets are Access, Insight, Speed, and Flexibility.

Access – Since 2008, Navanti has built vetted local networks of researchers in over 70 countries throughout Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia. They are native to the environments in which they operate, providing nuanced access across ethnic group, gender and class lines.

Insight – Access, without a deep understanding of local dynamics is necessary, but not sufficient for acting in emerging markets. Navanti develops and maintains highly trained subject matter experts that combine unparalleled access of our researchers with cutting edge analytical techniques to surface the “why” that that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Speed – Insight, on difficult to acquire in-depth analysis, is useless unless it can be delivered in time to support operational decisions. Navanti structures all data efforts to meet client decision cycles and formats.

Flexibility – Navanti research adapts as local dynamics evolve, providing an opportunistic capacity that enables clients to anticipate and plan for near horizon change. Together, these principles allow Navanti to provide industry best reporting that provides clients with near real-time data.
