This one day workshop gave social researchers practical insight into management and process consultancy tools and techniques. The aim was to equip participants with a further dimension to their research skills, recognising that many social research projects either include a consulting element or would benefit from consulting capability – at inception, execution or dissemination stages.
By the end of the workshop, delegates managed to:
- understand what is meant by ‘consulting’ and recognise how it relates to research;
- be familiar with the competencies and capabilities expected of a proficient consultant;
- understand their own preferred consulting style links; and
- understand the main tools and frameworks used by consultants and, by knowing their relationship with organisation contexts/dynamics, when to use them
