Evidence is critically important at all stages in the policy-making and implementation cycles.
Visions must balance evidence, intention, and organisational core purpose. Effective prioritisation requires a solid evidence base. And review and evaluation processes hinge on knowing what works (or not), in what circumstances and why.
We know how to collect evidence from a variety of sources. This includes large data sets, surveys and questionnaires, focus groups and interviews, observations, and literature reviews.
More importantly we know how to help our clients make sense of the evidence by presenting it in accessible formats and using it in workshops and other events. We use evidence to prompt discussions and new ways of thinking, to enable decision-making, and to underpin findings and recommendations.
We enable our clients to think creatively about the use of evidence and to make the most of the evidence they have access to.
