Putting research to work in the real world supporting learning
You know those nagging feelings when you’re leading innovative, ambitious work? Feelings that either you might be wearing the emperor’s new clothes or that there’s some secret knowledge just out of reach? We help put those concerns to rest by rapidly synthesizing existing research across fields that demonstrates your work is evidence-based while simultaneously providing insights for deepening impact and increasing reach. This approach is faster, more efficient, and more likely to produce insights that are actionable and make business sense than a typical evaluation.
We don’t stop at analysis for strategic planning. Our wide-ranging experience leading technology, professional learning, communications, fundraising, and policy initiatives—in addition to research—allows us to work with you to implement strategies and design products and services across your organization that capitalize on research insights.
