Planning service
How the planning service works
We help to scope the needs of the team, understand existing skills, tools and processes and set clear objectives, milestones and deliverables for the project. We work transparently and in an agile way with clients so you can follow progress and reprioritise work as the requirements become clearer. We are tool and provider agnostic, so provide independent advice rooted in user needs and an understanding of the wider landscape you operate in.
Planning service works with specific services


Training service provided
How the training service works
We diagnose skills gaps and understand the dynamics and roles in your team. We provide training to address the needs of individuals in the team in a range of modes, from in-person workshops to virtual, self-paced learning. These are always practical and tailored to your organisation and its context: leaving behind greater confidence, practical skills and low-cost tools and templates.

Where we provide implementation support for a consultation tool, we provide publisher training on publishing and moderation.
