CONSULTATION

Much of our work necessitates either detailed stakeholder consultation or broader public dialogue. Sierra Planning and Management has considerable expertise and experience in engaging stakeholders using a range of methods. Our experience includes both formal and informal consultation techniques, information exchange and opinion surveys, as well as consultation mandated by legislation, regulation and government policy.

Our choice of consultation method is tailored to the requirements of the project. Our approach is modern, flexible, relevant and reliable.  We use an ever-expanding range of techniques, including live audience polling and COVID-related online public meeting platforms.

Our knowledge comes from over 20 years of experience in market research, ensuring statistically reliable results when called for by the project, as well as more qualitative techniques such as focus groups, when consultation requires a more in-depth, yet representative approach to engagement. Whatever your consultation, information or survey needs, we can provide a cutting-edge solution guaranteed to meet the test of community approval.

Specific services include:

  • Public, stakeholder and expert consultation
  • Survey design, implementation and analysis
  • Focus groups
