Engagement of an experienced scientist and research manager external to their organisation can often assist companies in the development of their research programs.  An external experienced research manager  can bring a new approach to the proposed research plan, and can often suggest alternative approaches to methodology, techniques and staffing, which can increase the likelihood of a successful outcome for the project.  otbSolutions have a long history of successful involvement in the selection and development of research programs for the minerals and energy industries; experience which successfully translates to other industries.

In addition to offering support with the selection and establishment of research programs, otbSolutions also offer ongoing leadership and management of research programs, either through continuing oversight of research programs established in partnership wtih otbSolutions, or through complementary programs that are already underway.
