qdaservices-ethos

Our ethos 

We have a clear ethos that underlies everything we do. 

Impartial advice

We have known the developers of all the leading CAQDAS packages for many years and work closely with them. However, we operate completely independently - we have no commercial ties with any software developer or vendor. 

This is intentional and very important to us, and it means you get impartial, objective advice and services that are right for you, never influenced by any commission-based relationship.

To find out more about these software programs, visit the developer websites, or read the reviews on the CAQDAS Networking Project website.

Tailored services

We are driven by a desire to facilitate high-quality analysis and enable appropriate use of software in individual contexts. This means that we take the time to understand your methodological and practical needs and we tailor our services accordingly. 

We do not promote any software or analytic strategy over others but advise clients according to their needs. You are the expert in the specifics of your project. Our breadth and depth of experience and knowledge means we can best facilitate and guide your work. 

Researcher-teachers

We believe it is essential to be actively involved in research in order to be able to teach, consult and coach appropriately.

We are all active researchers and teachers, with different backgrounds and skills. We work on a range of projects and share our expertise to ensure our clients and students receive the best possible service.

Testimonials

The advanced NVivo workshop was so useful. I now have the skills to enable me to use NVivo much more powerfully. Christina is a brilliant trainer and she adapted the course to suit the requirements of those that attended. Christina also gave everyone individual help with their projects. I could not recommend Christina's course highly enough, or emphasise more the value of this course for researchers working with qualitative data.
