About Us

Why

We believe the role of research is not only to better understand the world, but also to improve it. Our mission is to serve both purposes.

The world is on fire and we don’t have time to waste with guesswork. Behavioral science gives us the tools:

Academic THEORY
to develop hypotheses

Empirical METHODS
to test and improve

We do what we do because ensuring a just and sustainable planet requires that we do better than better than nothing. Join us - we’ve been waiting for you.

What

Strategy

  • From surveys to experiments and all points in between, we think asking the right questions is the key to finding the right answers. Here's how we do it:
  • Experimental/quasi-experimental design
  • Literature reviews and content analyses
  • Surveys, interviews, and focus groups
  • Ethnographic fieldwork

Research

  • Strategy is key to successful implementation. We help you clearly identify the key stakeholders and how can you address their needs.
  • Stakeholder analyses
  • Logic models
  • Theory development and application
  • Program design

Implementation

  • We love to get our hands dirty and combine social science insights with innovative design to develop and implement many types of programs, including:
  • Video/web content (sponsored, organic)
  • Communications campaigns
  • Community outreach
  • Social Engagement Optimization

Evaluation

  • Understanding whether, how, and for whom a program works is vital to both proving and improving upon its efficacy. As such, our evaluation services include:
  • Field testing
  • Usability testing
  • Measurement and verification
  • Instrument development / testing

How

Our approach blends theory and methods from across the social sciences to enable iterative, adaptive testing and optimization to help you learn how to do better than “better than nothing.”
