ARTD is a leading public policy consulting firm. Our core business is working with government agencies and non-government organisations to make evidence-informed policy decisions; co-design service models and delivery strategies; plan for, track and evaluate outcomes; and continuously improve performance.
Effective strategy requires deep context area expertise to address complex policy problems. We facilitate strategy development through workshops, environmental scans, and needs analyses
Policies and program designs are more appropriate if they are co-designed with the people they affect and the staff delivering them. We work with our clients to engage individuals and communities in the design process, drawing on existing research evidence.
Taking an idea from design to delivery takes careful consideration. We work with you to develop delivery models that will work in real world contexts, and the guidelines to support them.
There’s a science to implementation – sequencing, roles and responsibilities, and embedding change. We work with clients to continuously improve their models during implementation.
Clear guidelines and effective data collection systems can help you monitor performance and make adjustments where needed to stay on track. We design systems that are user-friendly and focus on what matters.
Effective evaluation can guide decision-making and strengthen policy and program outcomes. We design evaluations and reviews that are rigorous, ethical and insightful, applying our knowledge of evaluation theory to your real-world contexts.
Effective use of evidence is crucial to inform continuous improvement of policies and programs, as well as ongoing program management and strategic decision-making. We help clients build evaluative thinking into business-as-usual through tailored capacity building.
