We can take your data and turn it into information and knowledge. We can analyze your survey results, or help with survey development, and write analytical reports of the results to meet your requirements. We can help you build a business case using relevant demographic statistics. We can work with you to maximise the use of your financial information to improve control over various aspects of your business or organization.

Building on the internal strengths of staff, we can provide the facilitation approach that brings out the best of your resources.  Our focus is in those areas of policy development, and program and project planning, that would benefit from an evidence-informed perspective.

A series of standard and customized workshops are available to introduce the availability and use of data and information for an evidence informed approach to policy, program and business planning.

Asset-based Community Development:  This two-hour workshop provides an introduction to asset-based community development.  It takes an “assets” rather than “needs” based approach to looking at a community’s strengths and potential.

Introduction to Indicators:  This workshop provides an overview of the development and use of indicators for use in program planning and operations.

The above workshops can be customized to meet your specific needs and can be shortened or extended (from two to seven hours).

Working with the professionals in your organization or business, we will help you explore your information needs and develop strategies and solutions to meet these.  This can include such things as reviewing your needs for information, identifying possible sources of data, and developing strategies to collect information, if needed.  Assistance can also be provided in analyzing and presenting the data and related information to achieve desired outcomes, clearly supported by evidence.
