Our Approach

Our approach is based on a dialogic design, built by consultation professionals.

The option development tool is a scoring "aid" which is ideally accompanied by a workshop.

Our Story

We specialise in technology for public engagement.  We run a number of cloud services such as SkillsAduit - a tool for measuring workforce competency in communications and engagement.

This product was born out of a need for more robust option appraisal leading into public consultation - particularly after a number of failed judicial reviews due to flaws in this process.
