Sense and meaning in a changing world
The landscape of products and services is changing rapidly, partly in response to new crises like extreme weather events and Coronavirus, but also because of changing demographics, health and new regulations.
Our qualitative research technique Sensemaking is the ideal way to understand that change from the people most affected - the buyers and users of your products and services. Why? Because it is based on the idea that people's ideas and behaviour evolve in response to their experiences. Sensemaking does not try to force-fit people's behaviour into a journey if it is not a journey (and not everything is) and it doesn't pretend that people 'make decisions' when in reality what they do is work things out as they go along.

We have had great success comparing the internal dialogue that we discover in Sensemaking with the public discourse.
