James Henry Dunne’s research has provided a foundation for business entrepreneurs to apply results and observations to their day-to-day operations and long-term strategic planning. His interest in providing this foundation stems from his own experience confronting the challenges of both operating and counseling businesses and the realization that support and guidance from valid external sources is an essential component to operational decision-making and long-term strategic success. His added focus on strategic decision making based on governmental policy that may adversely impact business operations is also a focus of his work.
