Like you, we are in the problem solving business. The challenge we face in local government is that different constituencies in our communities have different interests and preferences. A critical first step to solving a problem is thus engaging with these constituencies to understand what counts as a good solution. Only by doing this can we avoid the fractious (and expensive) failures that are too common in local government.
Our role is to help your team navigate the entire decision process, from idea creation to public assent and council approval. Unlike specialized communications or public consultation firms, we understand and attend to each stage of the decision-making process. This enables fast and coherent progress towards a solution. And unlike technology-focused firms, we draw on a comprehensive and proven set of capabilities. This allows us to select the best analytical tools for your specific requirements.
