Hello & welcome!
We are changing the change
We recognise you are dealing with complex problems. We work with organisations dedicated to improving the lives of the most vulnerable people in society. Traditional approaches to improving services assume it’s possible to design perfect solutions upfront, to deliver them within pre-determined timeframes and budgets and to predict the impact they will have in advance. For most of our clients, these approaches have failed.
You’ve probably found our website because you’ve got a hunch your organisation’s approach to projects, change management and improvement is broken. We offer an alternative.
We work with you to build capacity and deliver Agile ways of working that embrace this complexity and deliver tangible improvements, quickly.
For us, consulting doesn’t mean having all the answers. We bring together people who feel the pain of a service not working well to understand the problem they are facing, to design solutions and to put them into practice. We facilitate, we coach and we teach.
Our service transformation programme is widely regarded as the most effective training programme in the public sector. Rather than ‘death by PowerPoint’, delegates are given just enough theory to test out what they’ve learned in a simulated environment. Testing their new skills in practice ensures the learning sticks.
We’ve partnered with THE online facilitation experts, ReesMcCann to develop a new programme of training aimed at helping teams to develop the skills they need to continue to do great work online. Regardless of whether you’re trying to figure out how to keep your team motivated or want to learn how to run truly engaging remote workshops, we’ve got you covered.
We use Impact Sprints to help teams develop and test solutions to messy problems, quickly. Drawing inspiration from Google Ventures’ Design Sprints, General Electric’s GE Workout and Lean’s Kaizen Blitz we’ve spent 10 years honing our approach and have used it to tackle challenges and improve outcomes with hundreds of services in the public sector.
Startup in Residence.
Our programme connects startups with local authorities to solve challenges that matter most to your community. Through our partnership with World Startup we provide access to mentoring and finance to help incubate great ideas and make them happen.
It's a no-brainer, I can't recommend this course enough.

I found your Online Consulting and Facilitation course to be invaluable! It has really helped to make working remotely just that little bit more bearable.

The atmosphere created by the Basis team makes learning easy and fun. The variety of experience from the team helps provide a wholesome experience for me and I would definitely take part in future courses.
