WHAT WE DO
WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
We have known - and work closely with - the developers of all the leading qualitative data analysis software packages (CAQDAS) for decades. Yet we operate completely independently – with no commercial ties with any software-developer or vendor.
This is crucial to us, as it means we provide impartial, objective advice and services that are right for you.
We only facilitate high-quality analysis to enable appropriate use of software in your context. This means we take time to understand your methodological and practical needs and we tailor our services and advice accordingly.
We do not provide generalised, off-the-peg, instruction manual type courses. We work hard with you designing and delivering our workshops so that participants leave with an exact sense of what they need to do (and how) for their analysis - rather than a more general sense of what the software can do and how they might use it. This is a fundamental principle for us and the basis on which we have built our reputation.
We do not promote any software or analytic strategy, but provide you with support and advice according to your needs.
You are the expert in your project. Our breadth and depth of expertise means we can help facilitate and support your work.
We have decades of experience and expertise in all the leading CAQDAS softwares, including ATLAS.ti, Dedoose, f4analyse, MAXQDA, NVivo, QDA Miner & WordStat, Quirkos, SPSS and Transana.
We have developed the Five-level QDA method for harnessing the power within qualitative data analysis software packages, independent of methodology, software package, or mode of learning. This is not a new method of data analysis, but a way of making clear what CAQDAS experts unconsciously already do.
We use our expertise to facilitate your needs.

ACTIVE RESEARCHERS, NOT JUST TRAINERS
We believe it’s essential to be actively involved in research to be able to teach, consult and coach appropriately. We’re all active researchers, with different backgrounds and skills.
We work on a range of projects and share our expertise to ensure you receive the best possible service.

Giving you the specific skills
I hired Christina to help my team identify possible qualitative software tools that would serve our needs in doing user experience (UX) research in the private sector. I had hired Christina previously for an academic research project of mine, and I had been incredibly impressed with her thoroughness and ability to guide researchers at all stages of experience. Her preparation and workshop were excellent and insightful.
She is able to tailor her guidance to the audience and ensure that everyone comes away with new strategies and tactics.

'Thinking the Unthinkable'
From our first phone call Dr Christina Silver understood our needs; to test our data thoroughly and reinforce our research findings. She made it clear from the get-go: NVivo work has to be preceded by a full and rigorous process of thinking through assumptions, planning the analysis and defining what certain terms used in interviews mean to us.
Christina is a good facilitator and effective challenger and fun with it. All our team enjoyed the time we spent with her. Christina is also practical; advising us on the appropriate version of NVivo for our needs, and hardware.

Sarah was fantastic in adapting her workshop into webinar format with extremely short notice.
Both her and Jason fully supported the logistics of this abrupt change, advising on the appropriate technology and helping us prepare the students for what to expect on the day.
Feedback from participants has been excellent both with regards to the content and the engagement and interactivity that Sarah managed to bring in the webinar.
