The tools we use
Whilst each programme is different and unique, all our work draws upon the dual concepts of:
- Participation leading to ‘Exchange’: Based on behavioural theory and the understanding that to enable behaviour change you must first understand the existing behaviours and the barriers, facilitators, and motivations to change. We then use this insight to develop programmes which provide an 'exchange' in which stakeholders understand that the resulting benefits of changing their behaviour are worth the 'price' they pay.
- Co-production leading to new societal value: Based on the understanding that the competitiveness of an organisation and the health of the communities and environment around it are mutually dependent. Therefore to achieve a sustainable legacy, organisations need to engage and work alongside their communities and stakeholders to understand the issues which are most important to them and then co-develop solutions that create new societal value.
To deliver against these dual concepts, our teams draw upon a range of methodological tools and techniques including;
- Desk-based research - including benchmark of existing programmes and strategies
- Stakeholder / social insight - including stakeholder engagement, using creative and interactive tools
- Qualitative research - including stakeholder interviews, surveys and analysis
- Quantitative research - including online and social media research, data analysis and assurance
- Future-scanning techniques - including scenario-planning tools
- Sustainability appraisals, lifecycle assessments - including carbon and water footprinting,
