& organisational learning

We co-design policy and public services, undertake applied research that helps you understand participation and digital tools and develop innovative approaches to organisational thinking and creativity.

Our global work with parliaments, governments, civil society and businesses helps them to become better at listening, more responsive to what they hear and accountable for what they do.
