Strategic Study, Analyses and Research

Studies are key to informed decision-making, determining whether to proceed with a project or opportunity and establishing parameters for success.

Studies might serve to provide:

  • A snapshot of a specific situation concerning a region, population, employment sector or competitive market, to better understand the current situation or facilitate decision-making.
  • Clarification of project feasibility before developing a business plan; for instance, for a company looking to develop a new product or service.
  • A critical mass of information to gauge market trends in a business study, through qualitative (perception and needs) and quantitative analyses (data collected through surveys or analyses).
  • Strategic information, derived from analyses, for an institution or non-profit organization trying to launch a new value-added project, such as an incubator, an entrepreneurial school, an innovation lab or any other transformative structure for the organization and its environment.
  • Elements of expertise to better define a specific project currently under consideration, such as a municipal development strategy, a strategic initiative or others.

What is the Timeline for Conducting a Study?

The duration varies based on needs, typically ranging from two to six months, depending on the depth and scope of the project to define.


What are the Deliverables Following a Study?

Study results are typically delivered in a report, in Word or PDF format, containing all elements of the studies, analyses and research conducted.

The deliverable itself depends on the depth of research and analyses performed and the pursued objective.

Espace Stratégies can adapt the result to the organization, targeting specific aspects of analysis to meet your needs or painting a broader picture encompassing all parameters under study.


The Espace Stratégies Approach

Espace Stratégies is an independent firm that provides an outside perspective on your organization’s challenges. As an external collaborator, we are able to advance fresh ideas and challenge certain problematic status quos. We regularly work with public and municipal organizations, businesses, non-profits, investors and the government. We use our understanding of various stakeholders and their needs to establish relevant connections.

Papineau RCM

In its most-recent strategic planning exercise, the Papineau RCM asked Espace Stratégies to conduct an analysis of best practices in municipal management innovations. The RCM used this analysis to consider new value-added services for municipalities in its territory.


The Centre d’incubation et d’accélération en mobilité intelligente à Laval is a centre of excellence/testing laboratory for technology projects powered by the City of Laval and the Société de transport de Laval. Espace Stratégies was mandated to develop the incubator’s business plan and its financial structure for the next three years for development, implementation and deployment. With ES’s assistance, CIAMIL was able to develop a partnership strategy with ecosystem actors and raise $225,000 in funding in 2018.

Pôle régional d'innovation de Laval

Espace Stratégies worked with all local stakeholders to support the creation of a new organization responsible for coordinating regional innovation. This project was in response to a Government of Quebec call for proposals to create regional innovation hubs across Quebec. Today, these hubs have become regional acceleration spaces. Espace Stratégies carried out the entire consultation process and wrote the proposal that was submitted to and accepted by the government. It was one of the first projects announced and was awarded $1.6 million in funding in June 2018. Espace Stratégies then helped to create and implement the PRIL (Pôle régional d’innovation de Laval).
