Much of the work of Sierra necessitates either detailed stakeholder consultation or broader public dialogue. We have considerable expertise and experience in engaging stakeholders for a variety of project-related purposes, using a range of methods of engagement and follow-up. Our experience includes both formal and informal consultation techniques, information exchange and opinion survey, 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 represents a flexible tool to maximize the effectiveness of any given consultation process and takes advantage of the growing range of internet-based media to enable community input. When depth of analysis is required, Sierra’s experience in a range of quantitative and qualitative survey and analysis techniques can be relied upon. Our knowledge comes from over 20 years of experience in market research, ensuring statistically reliable results when called for by the project, and 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:
