Qualitative surveys, interviews and workshops

In addition to the classical quantitative methods of economics and social sciences, we have extensive expertise in qualitative and dialogue-based research and participation methods. We apply these methods in a complementary way and develop explorative hypotheses for quantitative analysis. We use qualitative analyses to classify and explain quantitative results and to put them into a broader context. At the same time, participation processes in particular serve to involve all relevant stakeholders at an early stage. This increases the acceptance, the accuracy of fit and the later implementation of the developed measures and projects.

We offer to our clients awide range of qualitative methodologies. This includes semi-structured interviews, in-depth surveys of hard-to-reach target groups, Delphi rounds as well as various workshop and conference formats (e.g. world café, open space, co-creation workshops, future workshops, focus group discussions).
