What we do
We use an evidence-based approach in our consultancy, coaching and learning & development practices that delivers significant benefits to our clients. It enables us to help our clients develop effective and adaptable organisations through using the best information available. That can be ‘hard’ information in management science or ‘soft’ information in the human sciences – no fads and no fuzziness.
So, how does an evidence-based approach work?
- Applying scientific principles to problem-solving, decision-making and management processes.
- Using a systematic approach to gathering facts about your organisation before making recommendations.
- Applying critical thinking and decision support tools that reduce bias to improve judgement
- Considering the ethical dimension, including effects on stakeholders
We view each engagement as unique; understand that every client is different, and respect the knowledge and experience you have as an organisation and an individual. We do not offer ‘off the shelf’ solutions, so we take the time to question, listen and understand before recommending an approach. This ensures that we deliver solutions that work and provide the best value possible.This is the foundation of our practice. We don’t assume we know the answer before we have discussed the problem, and we don’t propose solutions that you are capable of delivering yourself. We use a systematic and rational approach to analysing your requirements and finding the areas where we can add the most value for you.

Learning & development
Our learning and development practice provides
Evidence-based management training and development in select venues and in-house. Our public training courses provide personal development in business strategy, leadership and change management, which are the key elements for delivering growth and improving performance. These workshops provide the basis for achieving organisation alignment and process improvement. We design all our courses using an evidence-based approach, to confirm that what you learn works, through research and practical experience. This gives you powerful, proven methods and tools to help you get results.
All of our public events can be presented in-house if you have large numbers to train, or can form the basis of tailored in-house development if the standard design does not meet all your objectives.
The course designs are updated after each presentation as part of our commitment to continuous improvement, and to ensure the content is up to date by using the latest proven research findings.
