Aztalan Learns the Importance of Focus Groups

Aztalan Engineering is making strides in 2014, and one important stride is the continuation of the Aztalan team focus group training sessions with Nalani Services. A focus group is a form of qualitative research with a group of people to connect, collaborate, and explore new ideas to an old problem. Common focus group topics may include uncovering opportunities relating to strategic planning, marketing, market diversification, or cultural initiatives to improve upon an existing solution.

Toys For Tots
Toys For Tots

If you reflect on your own life and recall what it meant to receive a toy at Christmas, you cannot help but realize the positive impact that a new toy had on your life.

  • To help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas
  • To play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children
  • To unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign
